Conclusion and further reading

A single soloist may continue with a second full performance in a different raga (remember, it will be a different time of day) or finish with several short semi-classical pieces. At the Raga Samay Festival, you’ll have a few minutes to stretch your legs, have a snack, or wake yourself up with a cup of tea or coffee before it’s time for the next soloist, and the next raga.
