Tabla Solo concert in Mumbai (14th June 2018)
Happy to be the opening batsman for this unique Tabla Utsav in Mumbai!! In addition to performing the traditional repertoire of various gharanas like Farrukhabad, Delhi, Ajrada, etc., I will highlight the highly improvisational and impromptu approach of the Punjab Gharana.
I will especially present an alaap based Peshkaar, baant- kaidas and different chhands and layakari in Khanda, Mishra and Teesra Jati.
I will also present some high voltage bandishes/ compositions which are both contemporary & classical, poetic and traditional, ending my performance with my contemporary interpretation of the rains, called Monsoon Magic!
Please join me on Thursday, 14th June at 7:30 p.m. at the Mini Theatre, Ravindra Natya Mandir, Prabhadevi, Mumbai.
Grateful to Pt. Satish Vyas for coming up with this great concept and Maharashtra Lalit Kala Nidhi for inviting me to perform at this unique Festival.
