a collection of quickly flowing micro-ragas, navigating the realm born of the primordial sound.
Vidyutaya means to gleam or flash as a bolt of lightning; radiance. the fast succession of micro-ragas (condensed alapanam and thalam rendered in bursts) mimics that of a storm wrought with the spectral hues of both creation and destruction. these sounds are a tiny tiny portion of the sound that creates the whole universe; and the ragas are intended to help both performer and listener alike realise NADA , the primodial tonal structure of the goddess manifest as all reality. It is dedicated to Maa Durga and the Holy Family.
