Unplugged acts

Kalabhumi goes Live this October started off with Shalini and Sandeep offering a delightful acoustic set where tunes in different languages were sang accompanied by classical guitar and accordion. The evening proceeded with Joshua inviting us into his lyrical songwriting and emotional solo performance. The first part of the evening closed with a rhythmical crescendo steeped in Indian traditional music led by Ray on electric veena and Suresh on cajun first and drum kit later on.

Five Twenty One Equals Eight

In today’s music edition we continue with free and avantgarde jazz – Roscoe Mitchell as one of the key figures in the genre, and Antohony Braxton who’s music is difficult to categorize, and because of this, he likes to refer to his works (and the works of his collaborators and students) as simply “creative music”. He has claimed in numerous interviews that he is not a jazz musician, though many of his works have been jazz and improvisation oriented, and he has released many albums of jazz standards.

Tabla recital by Sanjay Mukherjee

Saturday evening we witnessed a powerful tabla recital, supported by the sitar, by Pt. Sanjay Mukherjee showcasing various styles of tabla playing.
He is one of the most well versed musicologist and great teacher on the subject belonging to the Farukhabad Gharana of Hindustani Classical Music.
He went through different complex tabla rhythms which only connoisseurs can name. Even poetry could be recited by playing the tabla… as he commented, the fingers need to sprout vigour and emotions with supreme artistry.
Tabla and sitar blended together very well. They concluded with a jugalbandi on tabla and sitar much to the taste of the public.
The evening was organised by ARPANAA.
Thank you so much Geeta, Creativity & Mona, Yantra for this wonderful evening.
