Kalapini Komkali, International Indian Classical Vocalist Performs Ragas

At the Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas, at 8pm on Saturday, 29 December 2018 the well-known Indian classical vocalist, Kalapini Komkali, sang a range of ragas in her distinct melodic field and with her versatile improvisation.

Kalapini was accompanied by Sri Prashant Pandav on Tabla, Sri Niranjan Lele on Harmonium.

“Kalapini lives in Dewas, Central India. She is an active trustee of the Kumar Gandharva Sangeet Academy.
Commercial releases of her studio recordings include, ‘Aarambha’ and ‘Inheritance’, released by HMV; and ‘Dharohar’ released by Times Music. ‘Swar- Manjari’, a live concert recording, was released by Virgin Records. Kalapini has also recorded for sound tracks of the films, ‘Paheli’ and ‘Devi Ahilya’.” ~

“Kalapini Komkali is widely recognized as one of the finest and well-trained classical vocalists of the younger generation. Endowed with a rich and bold voice Kalapini deepening her hold over and understanding of her inheritance, has evolved her own vision and is well on her way to evolve a distinct style of her own. She has a rich repertoire to choose from, a mind full of curiosity, a youthful imagination and a mature command over various aspects of classical vocalism. Her range of expression covers the tersely classical and earthy folk of the Malwa region and the movingly devotional and meditative. This indeed is a tall order, but she has shown a consistent and continuous growth as a musician singing with self-confidence and abandon.”
