Course Objective:

This course seeks to acquaint students with the rich legacy of Tagore’s music, its manifold layers, its historical contexts, its musical intricacies and its linguistic richness and how this genre of music truly captures an imaginative blend of the local, national, international and universal. Students would learn about how Tagore carries out a ‘dialogue’ with the Upanishads, Vaishnavism, Baul cultures, Buddhist and Sufi thought, bringing them all together in short and long lyrics in magical blends of tunes from several traditions. The lyrics plumb the deepest recesses of human experience encompassing many shades and nuances of love, separation, metaphysical anxiety, spiritual quest, tragic isolation, tragic reconciliation as well as the celebration of nature and life.


  • Rabindranath Tagore and his times. The Renaissance of Bengal.
  • Tagore and the Upanishads, Vaishnav Tattwa (theory), Baul, Sufi and Buddhist philosophies.
  • Concepts of classical Indian aesthetics like rasa and sahardya (the ideal auditor or audience). Introduction of classical ragas (both Carnatic and Hindustani) used by Tagore.
  • Rabindrasangeet in practice. Classes will be conducted by eminent Rabindrasangeet artists like Pramita Mallick, Prabuddha Raha, Srikanta Acharya, Sraboni Sen, Prithwidev Bhattacharyya, Sounak Chattopadhyay, Srabana Bhattacharyya and well-known academics like Professor Lakshmisree Banerjee, Prof. Ananda Lal, Dr. Sanghita Sanyal, Dr. Susmita Banerjee, Dr. Saibal Basu and Prof. Sreemati Mukherjee.
