Shantih shantih shantih
Incorporating santoor, tabla, sitar and vocals, the musicians perform ragas that link to themes within The Waste Land, for example Raga Deepak (which is said to ignite fires) responds to Part III of the poem, The Fire Sermon, and Megh Malhar engages with Part IV Death By Water, being a Hindustani classical raga that has power in legend to produce rain wherever it is sung or performed.
