: Concept  Note :

Global Calendar of Classy Concerts

Very few News Papers/TV channels can cover the News/Advts/Previews/Reviews of Classical Concerts (Music & Dance). Pune is The Capital of Classical Concerts. Yet, only Daily Sakal covers it   regularly. Non Marathi Audience remains hungry.  Besides, media news is perishable .One can’t have quick access when one wants it.   As such, music lovers don’t get the concert-information easily.   Its, indeed, the Need of the Hour for Music Lovers all over the World. Internet is the best medium.

As a service to Lovers of Indian Classical Music all over the world, I plan to continue to include “Global Calendar of Classy Concerts”: in www.malharaavishkar.com

Plan of Action:

On the basis of information received from Organizers, Artists & music lovers, I will continue to list the global events/programs/concert in next three months. I will try to include following info:

Time & Date:  Exact Time ,Date, Duration, The significance/special occasion of the Day i.e. the founder’s day, Birth/Death Anniversary of great Gurus/Artists in whose memory the Concert is Organised etc.

The Organiser: Name of the Instn/Person to Contact/Tel No/e mail id

The Venue: Postal Address with Land Mark, Tel No…, Picture, Seating,

The Tickets: Rates, Source

The Artists & Accompanists: Bio Data, Tel No, Photo, Interview,

The Theme: like Ek Pariwar, Ek Malhar, Ek Sur Samay Ke Noor will be explained for better appreciation.

Database will be created for above info. The Calendar is the need of Music Lovers all over the world. They will have the concert-information well in-time. NRI/Foreign Music Lovers will be able to plan India Visits to coincide with favorite Festival. Such as :   “ Savai ”  & Malhar Aavishkar in Pune ,Banganga in Mumbai , Swami Harivallabh in Jalandhar ,  Sankat Vimochan in Banaras, Saptak in Ahemedabad,  ITC Sangeet Sammelan in Kolkatta ! Even Resident Indians visiting   Delhi/Calcutta/Mumbai/Pune/LA/SF/New Jersey/Sharaja   will have easy access to concert information.  

I would also like to post additional interesting features, like interviews, anecdotes audience feed back by e mail/SMS, Best Sellers, My Choice etc.  The scope is vast.

But, needless to add ,its success depends upon the active co-operation of organizers, music-lovers , music writers and all other concerned.

Other Art Events like Painting Exhibitions, Workshops, Seminars, will be added in due course.

Please feel free to give your views/comments/advice to make it more users friendly

Global Calendar of Classy Concerts

Very few News Papers/TV channels can cover the News/Advts/Previews/Reviews of Classical Concerts (Music & Dance). Pune is The Capital of Classical Concerts. Yet, only Daily Sakal covers it   regularly. Non Marathi Audience remains hungry.  Besides, media news is perishable .One can’t have quick access when one wants it.   As such, music lovers don’t get the concert-information easily.   Its, indeed, the Need of the Hour for Music Lovers all over the World. Internet is the best medium.

As a service to Lovers of Indian Classical Music all over the world, I plan to continue to include “Global Calendar of Classy Concerts”: in www.malharaavishkar.com

Plan of Action:

On the basis of information received from Organizers, Artists & music lovers, I will continue to list the global events/programs/concert in next three months. I will try to include following info:

Time & Date:  Exact Time ,Date, Duration, The significance/special occasion of the Day i.e. the founder’s day, Birth/Death Anniversary of great Gurus/Artists in whose memory the Concert is Organised etc.

The Organiser: Name of the Instn/Person to Contact/Tel No/e mail id

The Venue: Postal Address with Land Mark, Tel No…, Picture, Seating,

The Tickets: Rates, Source

The Artists & Accompanists: Bio Data, Tel No, Photo, Interview,

The Theme: like Ek Pariwar, Ek Malhar, Ek Sur Samay Ke Noor will be explained for better appreciation.

Database will be created for above info. The Calendar is the need of Music Lovers all over the world. They will have the concert-information well in-time. NRI/Foreign Music Lovers will be able to plan India Visits to coincide with favorite Festival. Such as :   “ Savai ”  & Malhar Aavishkar in Pune ,Banganga in Mumbai , Swami Harivallabh in Jalandhar ,  Sankat Vimochan in Banaras, Saptak in Ahemedabad,  ITC Sangeet Sammelan in Kolkatta ! Even Resident Indians visiting   Delhi/Calcutta/Mumbai/Pune/LA/SF/New Jersey/Sharaja   will have easy access to concert information.  

I would also like to post additional interesting features, like interviews, anecdotes audience feed back by e mail/SMS, Best Sellers, My Choice etc.  The scope is vast.

But, needless to add ,its success depends upon the active co-operation of organizers, music-lovers , music writers and all other concerned.

Other Art Events like Painting Exhibitions, Workshops, Seminars, will be added in due course.

Please feel free to give your views/comments/advice to make it more users friendly

An Innovative Initiative
Concept Note
Calendar of Classy Concerts /Calendar of Classy Events
 
Very few News Papers/TV channels can cover the News/Advts/Previews/Reviews of Classical Concerts (Music & Dance). Pune is The Capital of Classical Concerts. Yet, only Daily Sakal covers it regularly. Non Marathi Audience remains hungry. Besides, media news is perishable .One can’t have quick access when one wants it. As such, music lovers don’t get the concert-information easily. Its, indeed, the Need of the Hour for Music Lovers all over the World. Internet is the best medium.

As a service to Lovers of Indian Classical Music all over the world, I plan to include “ Global Calendar Classy Concerts ” : in www.malharaavishkar.com

Plan of Action:
On the basis of information received from Organizers, Artists & music lovers , I will list the global events/programs/concert in next three months. I will try to include following info:

Global Calendar of Classy Concerts

Very few News Papers/TV channels can cover the News/Advt/Previews/Reviews of Classical Concerts (Music & Dance). Pune is The Capital of Classical Concerts. Yet, only Daily Sakal covers it regularly. Non Marathi Audience remains hungry. Besides, media news is perishable .One can’t have quick access when one wants it. As such, music lovers don’t get the concert-information easily. Its, indeed, the Need of the Hour for Music Lovers all over the World. Internet is the best medium.

As a service to Lovers of Indian Classical Music all over the world, I plan to include
“ Calendar Classy Concerts ” : in www.malharaavishkar.com

Plan of Action:

On the basis of information received from Organizers, Artists & music lovers , I will list the global events/programs/concert in next three months. I will try to include following info:

Time & Date: Exact Time ,Date, Duration, The significance/special occasion of the Day i.e. the founder’s day, Birth/Death Anniversary of great Gurus/Artists in whose memory the Concert is Organized etc.

The Organiser: Name of the Instn/Person to Contact/Tel No/e mail id

The Venue: Postal Address with Land Mark, Tel No…, Picture, Seating,

The Tickets: Rates, Source

The Artists & Accompanists: Bio Data, Tel No, Photo, Interview,

The Theme : like Ek Pariwar, Ek Malhar, Ek Sur Samay Ke Noor will be explained for better appreciation.

Database will be created for above info. The Calendar is the need of Music Lovers all over the world.
They will have the concert-information well in-time. NRI/Foreign Music Lovers will be able to plan India Visits to coincide with favorite Festival. Such as : “ Savai ” & Malhar Aavishkar in Pune ,Banganga in Mumbai , Swami Harivallabh in Jalandhar , Sankat Vimochan in Banaras, Saptak in Ahemedabad, ITC Sangeet Sammelan in Kolkata ! Even Resident Indians visiting Delhi/Calcutta/Mumbai/Pune/LA/SF/New Jersey/Sharaja will have easy access to concert information.

I would also like to post additional interesting features, like interviews, anecdotes audience feed back by
e mail/SMS, Best Sellers , My Choice etc. The scope is vast. But, needless to add its success depends upon the active co-operation of organizers and all other concerned. Other Art Events like Painting Exhibitions, Workshops, Seminars, will be added in due course.

Thematic Concert
“Kathak- Parampara…Pravaaha”

Maneesha Nrityalaya Trust, Pune is glad to announce a Kathak dance concert titled ‘Kathak- Parampara…Pravaaha’, for the first time in Delhi with a troupe of 15 dancers. It is scheduled on the eve of ‘International Dance Day’, i.e. 28th April at the Kamani Auditorium. The founder and director of Maneesha Nrityalaya, Mrs. Maneesha Sathe, with her daughter and disciple Mrs. Shambhavi Vaze, will be performing along with the student members of Maneesha Nrityalaya’s performing unit.


Shambhavi
 
Mother and Daughter Duo
 

Kathak, a dynamic classical dance form from the northern India has a rich traditional repertoire which showcases the intricacies of the footwork patterns, the fast spins, the graceful body movements and postures and the subtle, yet impressive abhinaya. One can experience all this in the ‘Parampara’ part of the concert which comprises of a ‘Vandana’, a ‘taal presentation’, a ‘Chatarang’ composed by the maestro Balwantrai Bhattacharya.


Desciples
Desciples

Kathak being a versatile dance form has been successful in coping up with the changing times. The ‘Pravaaha’ part of the concert will give us an opportunity to witness the different hues of Kathak with some explicit choreographies on cotemporary and world music compositions by maestros like Shankar Mahadevan, Taufiq Qureshi and many more. Sequences like ‘Antarman’ shall reflect the social issues of women, for instance, the dilemma an ambitious girl goes through while choosing between marriage and a career with high prospects. Renditions like ‘Vishwaninaad’ shall portray the true form of fusion.

‘Kathak- Parampara…Pravaaha’ is a concert for both connoisseurs and laymen. Today’s Kathak gives us a different outlook of the age-old dance form. However, through this concert, one will get the true insights of the traditions in Kathak, the ‘Pravaaha’, holding on to the ‘Parampara’.

Concept Note:

: Global Calendar of Classy Concerts:

Very few News Papers/TV channels can cover the News/Advt/Previews/Reviews of Classical Concerts (Music & Dance). Pune is The Capital of Classical Concerts. Yet, only Daily Sakal covers it regularly. Non Marathi Audience remains hungry. Besides, media news is perishable .One can’t have quick access when one wants it. As such, music lovers don’t get the concert-information easily. Its, indeed, the Need of the Hour for Music Lovers all over the World. Internet is the best medium.

As a service to Lovers of Indian Classical Music all over the world, I plan to include “Calendar Classy Concerts”: in www.malharaavishkar.com

Plan of Action:
On the basis of information received from Organizers, Artists & music lovers, I will list the global events/programs/concert in next three months. I will try to include following info:

Time & Date: Exact Time ,Date, Duration, The significance/special occasion of the Day i.e. the founder’s day, Birth/Death Anniversary of great Gurus/Artists in whose memory the Concert is Organized etc.

The Organiser: Name of the Instn/Person to Contact/Tel No/e mail id The

Venue: Postal Address with Land Mark, Tel No, Picture, Seating, The

Tickets: Rates, Source

The Artists & Accompanists: Bio Data, Tel No, Photo, Interview,

The Theme: like Ek Pariwar, Ek Malhar, Ek Sur Samay Ke Noor will be explained for better appreciation.

Database will be created for above info. The Calendar is the need of Music Lovers all over the world. They will have the concert-information well in-time. NRI/Foreign Music Lovers will be able to plan India Visits to coincide with favorite Festival. Such as : “ Savai ” & Malhar Aavishkar in Pune ,Banganga in Mumbai , Swami Harivallabh in Jalandhar , Sankat Vimochan in Banaras, Saptak in Ahemedabad, ITC Sangeet Sammelan in Kolkatta ! Even Resident Indians visiting Delhi/Calcutta/Mumbai/Pune/LA/SF/New Jersey/Sharaja will have easy access to concert information.

I would also like to post additional interesting features, like interviews, anecdotes audience feed back by e mail/SMS, Best Sellers, My Choice etc. The scope is vast. But, needless to add its success depends upon the active co-operation of organizers and all other concerned. Other Art Events like Painting Exhibitions, Workshops, Seminars, will be added in due course.

Please feel free to give your views/comments/advice to make it more user friendly

1st of the Series
Overview : 55th SAWAI GANDHARVA MUSIC FESTIVAL By M K Pardhi

The 55th annual Sawai Gandharva Music Festival took off on last Thursday (December 6, 2007) and soared high till Sunday (December 9). It made five flights during the four days.

The festival is the hallmark of the cultural life of Pune and presently the foremost among the music festivals in India.

It was launched in 1952 by Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, in co-operation with his colleagues, to perpetuate the memory of his Guru, Rambhau Kundagolkar, popularly known as Sawai Gandharva, a disciple of the maestro Ustad Abdul Karim Khan and a leading singer-actor of the Marathi theatre who had died a year before. It began on a very meagre scale and grew in popularity year after year.

Every year, a sprawling pandal is erected which has now a seating capacity of over ten thousand. Besides, hundreds of listeners squat outside, in the open courtyard on both sides of the spectacular pandal, wrapping themselves with warm clothes to ward off the December cold

Thousands of music lovers attend this festival regularly. They come from all over Maharashtra as well as from other States and also from abroad. For many of them it is an annual pilgrimage.

Lately, over the past three years, the timings of the music sessions have changed, due to the law prohibiting noise pollution. Formerly, there were three sessions held during nights till the next morning. The audience relished the hypnotic feel of the nightly music. Now they have adjusted themselves to new timings of late afternoon. To keep up with the number of artistes, the number of sessions has been increased to five including one in the morning of the consecutive Sunday.

Discernible changes have been taking place since the change in the managing body of the festival three years ago. Under the stewardship of Shrikant Deshpande, a band of young workers has been giving a new polished look to the festival, without disturbing its objectives and format and giving due respect to the old guards. Pandit Bhimsen Joshi continues to be the guiding star and play the role of patriarch.

The new changes are aimed at streamlining and disciplining the entire set- up and providing comfortable amenities to the audiences. The pandal and stage decoration has been modernised and polished. This year, for the first time, a portrait of Ustad Abdul Karim Khan, was displayed, along with the usual Sawai Gandharva’s, on the stage. Huge screens were installed inside and outside the pandal for live telecast of the performers for the benefit of distant audiences

This year there were some innovations in the programme pattern for the benefit of audiences as well as artistes. Short films on certain veteran artistes were screened in an auditorium elsewhere. These included those of Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, late Pandit Kumar Gandharva and Bharat Natyam dancer Alarmel Valli. The film on Alarmel Valli was also screened at the time of her performance on the stage.

Several artistes, particularly young ones, who performed in the festival, were interviewed separately at other places where they expressed their views and experiences on music. Every artiste at the time of his performance was introduced in English and Marathi, on the stage. An impressive exhibition of photographs of artistes who participated in the festival over the past three decades was held at the festival venue. The blank intermissions between two performances were filled up with the pre-recorded recital of Sanskrit prayer to Goddess Saraswati in the voice of Pandit Bhimsen Joshi. The festival has also started a website of its own to elicit reactions of music lovers at large.

The festival is keen on presenting a few up-coming artistes along with well established ones every year. Generally there are two dozens of main performers, apart from their accompanists. This year there were 23. Among them were Thespians like Pandit Jasraj, Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pandit Firoz Dastur, Shrimati Malini Rajurkar and Shrimati Prabha Atre. Among others were second generation artistes such as Shujat Khan (son of Ustad Vilayat Khan) on Sitar, Rahul Sharma (son of Pandit Shivkumar Sharma) on Santoor, Murad Ali (disciple of Sabri Khan) on Sarangi, Sandeep Apte (disciple of Ustad Vilayat Khan) on Sitar and vocalist Vijay Sardeshmukh (disciple of Kumar Gandharva). Other established artistes were Shrimati Arati Anklikar–Tikekar, Gundecha Brothers, Vyankateshkumar, Kaivalya Kumar Gurav, Ulhas Kashalkar, Shrikant Deshpande, Vijay Sardeshmukh, Ajay Pohankar and Vinod Digrajkar. This year Carnatik system of music came into prominence with vocalist Shrimati Sudha Raghunathan, violinist L.Subrahmanyam and Bharat Natyam dancer Shrimati Alarmel Valli, all the three greatly renowned in their respective fields.

Invariably all the eminent artistes who come from other parts of the country from year to year speak very highly about the Pune audiences. They say that no where else in the country they are appreciated so lavishly and understandingly as at this festival. Such sentiments were expressed this year by Sitarist Shujat Khan, flutist Hari Prasad Chaurasia, Santoor player Rahul Sharma and violinist L.Subrahmanyam.

A short recital by Pandit Bhimsen Joshi was the memorable event of this festival. Generally the festival concludes with his majestic recital. But he could not give a performance due to ill health for the past three years. Therefore his unexpected recital this year was received by the audiences as the drops of first rain from the clouds into the year-long thirsty beak of Chatak bird.


55th SAWAI GANDHARVA MUSIC FESTIVAL
6th Dec 2007 : from 4.00 pm onward By M K Pardhi

The festival opened customarily with an auspicious Shehnai recital. The artistes were Gayakwad brothers of Baroda whose grandfather had enjoyed the patronage of Sayajirao Gayakwad, king of the then princely state. Accompanied by Himanshu Mahant on Tabla, they played Raga Bhimpalas to the gait of Trital and a Dhoon in an assorted Raga Dhani to the gait of Kerwa Tal for about half an hour.

Sh Anand Bhate

Then followed Anand Bhate, a young disciple of Pandit Bhimsen Joshi. Initially he was acclaimed as a child prodigy for his uncanny imitation of popular Marathi theatre songs of the great singer-actor Bal Gandharva. Then hailed as ‘Anand Gandharva’, he had given hundreds of full-fledged performances far and wide.

The juvenile tenderness of his voice is now moulding into a robust virility during his training under Bhimsenji for about two decades past. His rendition was an obvious imitation of the Guru’s style, including the in-drawn application of voice which ascended up to Tar Pancham.

Anand delineated Raga Yaman with the traditional Khyal ‘Kahe Sakhi’ set to slow-paced Ektal and the complementary composition ‘Sakhi aeri aali piyabina’ set to mid-paced Trital. Then he sang the Guru’s favourite devotional song ‘Kanhoba tuzi ghongadi’ with a catchy rhythm. His last piece was Bal Gandharva’s favourite Abhang ‘Johar maay baap’ which reminisced of Bal Gandharva’s caressing mannerisms.

On the whole, Anand’s performance was mild, if not dull. But it built up a solid pedestal for the artistes to follow. He was accompanied on harmonium by Suyog Kundalkar and on Tabla by Bharat Kamat, both skilled on their respective instruments.

S’Sh Gundecha Bandhu

Gundecha Brothers, Umakant and Ramakant, of Bhopal have earned a wide reputation for their Dhrupad style. They sing together and are esteemed high among the few exponents of this ancient exalted genre of music. They have also rendered poems of renowned Hindi poets in this style and have built up a Dhrupad institution in Bhopal. They have groomed a sonorous, weighty and broad voice.

They selected the lofty Raga Shree. They exposed it with expansive Alap which is the mainstay of this music form. It is called Non Tom because it is done without words with the help of syllables like Non Tom. Their Alap work consisted of thundering, rumbling, hopping, surfing, soaring, groping, meandering phrases executed with the help of embellishments such as Gamak, Meend, etc

The Alap part is complemented with word-songs which generally praise gods like Shiva and Ganesh and indulge in an exciting play of rhythms set to different Tals. This was done by Gundecha Brothers with a Dhamar (a song type) called after the name of its Tal) of opening words ‘Achar rang bhijan lagi’. The recital concluded with a short Dhrupad (a song type) in Raga Adana set to Shool Tal of ten beats.

A Dhrupad recital always takes Pakhwaj (also called Mridang) for accompaniment. The grave and rumbling sound of this instrument appropriately enhances the exalted impact of Dhrupad compositions. This impact was all the more enhanced by Manik Munde and Akhilesh Gundecha on their respective instruments.

The recital charged the whole atmosphere with resounding sound waves and provided a lift for the oncoming performers

Ustd Murad Ali

Murad Ali, a young disciple of Sabrikhan and Ahmed Khwaja, came to the stage with his Sarangi. This instrument is difficult to handle and therefore gradually vanishing from vogue. It is extremely melodious. Murad Ali has been handling it since childhood and had won the first prize at the All India Radio competition at the tender age of ten.

He intoned the pensive Raga Puriya-Kalyan with the subtle nuances of its notes to a very slow movement of Ektal, complementing it with two Gats, one set to mid-paced Trital and the other to fast Ektal. He added a sprightly Dadra in an assorted Raga Khamaj and, on the cheering demand from the audience, a short light Dhoon intoned like the popular Thumri ‘Aye na balam’.

There was not much spark in his rendition; but it maintained purity of tradition.

Aman Ali Khan gave a stylish accompaniment on Tabla.

Smt Arati Anklikar-Tikekar

The session came to an end with an extremely high-flown recital by Arati Anklikar-Tikekar.

Arati is a prominent vocalist of the present generation. She has been giving performances at home and abroad for the past two decades. Initially trained in the Jaipur school by the virtuoso Kishori Amonkar, she has borrowed from other schools also, and has evolved a very elegant style of her own.

She is one of those rare musicians who are completely absorbed and rejoice their own music while singing. She sings with her entire personality. She has a keen sense of rhythm and sways with the rhythmic swings. Within an instant her voice dips to the Kharja (bass) notes and soars to the Tar notes. She has mastered an immense variety of Tans and rhythm phrases. But all along her full-throated and forceful expressions verged on shrill wailings in the high pitches.

Arati began with an unfamiliar Raga, namely Kaushik-Ranjani (almost similar to Chandrakamsa with Shuddha Re). She unfolded it with soulful Alaps fringed with crisp curls, set to the very slow gait of Roopak Tal. The words of the refrain were “Ae more sajanka”. It was complemented with a composition with the refrain “Rooth gaye savariya”, which was set to mid-paced Trital. There were innumerable sorties of variegated Tans and frisky jumps from low to high and vice versa.

Her playful mood heightened during the short melodies which followed. Among them the first was a mid-paced Trital composition in Raga Hemant describing the beauty of the Hemant (pre-winter) season. The other was a sound play ‘Zanan zanan baje’ set to fast ektal. They abounded in spiral Tans and waves of rhythmic phrases uttered in one breath. The next was a song set to an odd Tal Sunand of nine and a half beats. Bowing to the cheerful audience demand for a Marathi song, she sang the emotional lyric “Mee Radhika”. She concluded her bountiful recital with two devotional Abhangs in Raga Bhairavi. One of them was “Awagha rang ek zala” and the other was “Meepana gele”, both set to lilting fast gait of Kerwa Tal.

Ramdas Palsule and Dhananjay accompanied her on Tabla and Pakhwaj respectively. Harmonium was played by Milind Kulkarni, a promising youngster.
  


Sparkling Dancers by Vijay Shanker
 
 
Celebrate Bandra Trust organised series of events in the Bandra vicinity, to promote the queen of suburbs and towards global peace. While the programmes included all types of performing arts like rock music, jazz dance, etc, it was interesting to note that classical dances too were performed which is quite encouraging, as this is one way of taking classical arts to the comman man, as most of the performances were free and people were welcome to attend.

One such evening, last week at the Bandra promenade, presented Bharata natyam and Odissi. Bharata natyam was presented by talented dancer Prachi Saathi. Prachi Saathi is the disciple of Guru Lata Raman for more than eight years. Her performance was noteworthy for its techinical quality, precise and distinct movements and for the command over expressional dancing. Tall and slim, Prachi has a charming personality and she carried herself quite well during the performance.

After the invocation, Prachi performed the Kamas Swarajathi that formed a fine synthesis between music and melody and fortunately for Prachi, her mentor Guru Lata Raman was the vocalist too. Guru Lata Raman is an accomplished Bharata natyam exponent who has produced several high ranking students. Her musical rendering adds colour and richness to the entire performance and it was a treat to watch the dancer, dancing with complete involvement and enthusiasm. Prachi concluded the performance with an intricate Darbari Kanada Thillana that revealed her command over rhythmic patterns and pure dance.

The Odissi ensemble were the students of accomplished Odissi exponent Lisa Mohanty, who is the disciple of Guru Deba Prasad Das. Odissi style is known for its elegant,lyrical and torso deflections which is based on the "lasya" style of dancing. It was a visual delight to watch the dancers performing in uniformity and harmony, creating a fine synchronisation between music and dance. After the invocatory Manglacharan, the piece-de-resistance of the evening was the dramatic dispplay of the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu, like Rama, Balarama, Krishna, Buddha, Kalki etc, wherein lord Vishnu appears in a parituclar 'avatara' to fight against evil and 'adharma'. Lisa Mohanty has several performances to her credit and has also written a book on Odissi., she trains young aspirants at her academy in Powai. On the whole it was a wonderful initiative.

Pl Note addition of Manisha Sathe concert on 16th Dec


Review of Bharat Sangeet Utsav 2007

Even the sun has no choice except to toe the line – rise early and set late - as does the music season in Chennai. The music festival occupies more space and spreads from September and extends well into January and if you thought you had missed some particular artiste there is always scope to fulfil your desire sooner or later.

Carnatica and Sri Parthasarathi Swamy Sabha together got up a mega event in Chennai, the Bharat Sangeet Utsav - 2007. This was held at Narada Gana Sabha from November 1st to 11th.

The event was inaugurated at a function at the Hotel Residency Towers on Oct. 31st, where after a brief inaugural attended by social eminences and danseuse Sudharani Raghupathy, violin maestro T. N. Kishnan floored the invited guests with a two-hour cameo of pristine pure Carnatic Music.

At Narada Gana Sabha next day, the real fest began with Mangala Isai (Nagaswaram) by Bangalore Kothandaraman followed by the lighting of the Kuthuvilakku by Fred Kaplan of the US Consulate in Chennai. The stage was a spectacular set up done by Thota Tharani (of opulent cine-sets fame). The fresh flowers – Maruvu, Dhavanam,Thulasi, Saamandhi and Malli – lent it a natural glow. The effort in decoration really combined with good taste and imagination to make the stage look beautiful, yet simple. And it was in sync with the minds of the protagonists.

The main concert of the day was by T M Krishna, with Ramanujacharyulu on the violin, Sangita Kalanidhi Umayalpuram Sivaraman on the mridangam and Sunder Kumar on the Khanjira. No prizes for guessing who the star attraction was – Sivaraman of course. Krishna sang a fine neraval at Vedha Sasthra Purana (Sankarabharanam) and Sri Sivaraman's accompanying and his thani with Sunder Kumar had its own reverberative quality. Following the concert was a dance special – Ashtapadhi by Swarnamalya and Shrijith Nambiar - love-lyrics portrayed through the medium of dance. Mrs. Anuradha Sriram was the singer and was on debut, we were told, for a dance performance, and there was ease and elegance in her singing. But then, was impeccable English chosen on the plea of catering to an International audience?

Day two saw Sikkil Gurucharan performing, with Nagai Sriram on the violin, Mannargudi Easwaran on the mridangm and Purushothaman on the Khanjira followed by a Hindustani concert by Ashwini Bhide Deshpande whose sonorous voice exhibited a range that was wide and stunning. Vishaka Hari’s Sangeetha Upanyasam, the talk of the town, was an overflowing full house performance. Contrast this with the frivolous serials on TV – unending stories which leave a message that the normal housewife can manoeuver – to – kill and is endowed with men and material for this brutal task. People therefore are visibly fed up and would want to extricate themselves from these idiotic non-varying idiotic shows that repeatedly sully the mind and shred the soul. The audiencestrength is an indirect measure of this frustration. The wages of watching TV is death and let us therefore redeem ourselves by listening to Vishaka Hariji.

Came Day three and an all-important educative symposium on Voice Culture and Singing Styles was held. The participants were Sri T V Goplakrishnan, Dr. Shriram Parasuram, Dr. S A K Durga and two hindustani exponents Smt. Ashwini Bhide and Smt. Kalapini Komkali. The vidwans narrated their experiences, methods they willy-nilly adopted to reach where they were now, cautioned against imitative singing, and the futility of endless practice sessions, judicious use of your own voice and fielded questions from Dr. Prapancham Sitaram and others. Smt. Ashwini mentioned the 303 shot where the swara is supposedly at the centre and we (that should read they) hover around the periphery and make attempts to hit the bull’s eye.

Sowmya always has many things up her sleeve.That gentle breeze that blew as an alapana of Durbar - the varnam had started even before the alapana had ended, “Evvare”, a special ekaika krithi of the Sadguru in Gangeyabhooshani (a listeners request!), an alapana of Hamsanandhi that invited a review that it had Hindustani sprays and then a Thodi as Thodi should be. RK (i.e. R K ShriramKumar) was on the violin.We had the unobtrusive J Vaidhyanathan on the mridangam and a fresh “scholar” in music, Dr. Karthik on the Ghatam. Unnikrishnan’s concert that followed (both from the same Guru, Dr. S. Ramanathan) was after his own style. The accompaniments were Varadharajan on the violin, K V Prasad on the mridangam and B S Purushothaman on the Khanjira.

On day four Smt. Kalapini Komkali (daughter and disciple of the illustrious Kumar Gandharv) gave a morning concert with her deep bass voice which seemed only to illustrate the kharj riyaz (mandhara sthayi) regimen she had been into. She had spoken of this elaborately on the previous day about this practice.

Pandit Suhas Vyas son of Sri Vyas (Guru of Sriram Parasuram) sang in the next slot followed by Aruna Sairam’s concert with Padma Shankar on the violin, JV on the mridangam, Karthik on the Ghatam and Manian on the Ganjira. Sanjay landed with an alapana of Poornachandrika and a rarely sung krithi of GNB, VaradhaniGunanalina. Unnai Allaal Vere Gathi (Kalyani-Sivan) was rendered with complete accent on Bhava. He had Nagai Muralidharan on the violin and Mannargudi Easwaran on the mridangam and K V Goplakrishnan on the Ganjira and these percussionists together gave a highly competitive thani.

Day Five witnessed Sherthalai Ranganatha Sharma’s concert, followed by O S Arun, with his lilting Bhajans and a special Jugal Sangeet with Vishwa Mohan Bhat on the Mohan Veena and Ravikiran on the Chitraveena.

The next day being the sixth day we had a concert by Suryaprakash. He needs to work on many things, it appeared . He had formidable accompaniments in the form of MAS (M A Sundareswaran) on the violin and Raja Rao on the mridangam and E M Subramaniam on the ghatam.

Nithyashri dedicated her concert to Smt. D K Pattammal but the concert admittedly was a bit low key and lacked the “authoritative singing”, this popular artiste is known for. She was accompanied by Raghavendra Rao on the violin, Skandasubramaniam on the mridangam and Tiruchi Murali on the Ghatam.

Pandit Shivkumar Sharma played the Santoor and dedicated his concert to the late Sri Vishveswaran, his disciple. Sharmaji dealt with only one raga Jenjuti, but has the Santoor now become only an “effect” instrument ?

There was some respite for the organizers as day seven and eight were declared holidays on account of Deepavali.

Back from Deepavali on day nine, Geetha Rajasekhar sang to the accompaniment of Mysore Srikanth and Sangeetha Kalanidhi Vellore Ramabadhran.

Prof.V V Subramaniam gave his interpretation and explained the purpose of each raga and tried to drive home the point that each raga is functional in nature. Someone in the audience in sotto voce said this “Is it really Bhaktha on the mridangam – not to be heard at all?” and so draw your own conclusions. We had V V S Murari as violin support and Vaikkom on the Ghatam.

Poonkuyil Pattammal, a thematic presentation on Sangitha Kalanidhi Smt. D K Pattammal by Smt. Gowri Ramnarayanan had Vijay Siva singing Pattammal’s popular melodies with Tamil narratives for each song by Gowri. Vijay Siva took utmost care to present the songs as pure-gold-versions to evoke memories of the original - fully and truly. He had RK on the violin and Manoj Siva on the mridangam. Poonkuil Koovum Solayil (Balama Aaye of K L Sehgal) was at its sweetest.

On Day Ten, some revelations were made. Getting on stage to perform needs a lot of preparation and if you are a serious student of music then you will have to pass through many stages before you reach this destination – the stage. Young stars were put through tests of many kinds and the “Carnatic Idol” was found and anointed. Read more of it in detail at www.carnatica.net.

Gayathri Venkatraghavan’s concert was in the evening with Padma Shankar on the violin, Ganapathyraman on the mridangam and Guruprasad on the Ghatam. Sudha Raghunathan – did she try something experimental. You do not change your position vis a vis the mike but the voice thins and thickens. Contrast effect. It was something akin to the flute or the nagswaram emitting a full blown sound and a restrained sound depending on the controlled blow.

Let us march on to Day Eleven
The daring dynamic Ms Subashree Thaickachalam presented a “Ragamalika”, in the morning beat and had commissioned young playback singers for her show.

In the evening there was the Valedictory function and the release of a CD- Rare Padams and Varnams – A tribute to Brindamma, by Smt. Alamelu Mani and Mrs. Kalyani Sharma. His Excellency, the Governor of Tamil Nadu, graced the occasion with his presence and the connoisuer of art that he is, listened to Hariharan’s Ghazals for an hour or so.
Hariharan’s music has a certain all-embracing quality. Those who had gathered, irrespective of their standing as musicians or music lovers were willing to lose themselves for the entire 150 minutes, sumptuously applauding. What a finale! Remember the concept of TOMA (Top Of Mind Awareness) – Yes! This will remain at the top of everyone’s mind and really will become one of the many positive identification marks in the personality of Carnatica.

Statistics is not a dumb thing and it speaks. Eleven days (there were two holidays) – 17 carnatic music concerts, 4 hindustani concerts, 2 veteran violinists on stage, 2 veteran mridangists on stage, young stars on stage, an interactive symposium, carnatic idol talent hunt, a dance, a Harikatha - many bells were ringing to excite and enthuse you. Everyone was left in wonderment and were “even” in their appreciation. Some expressed it openly, while others had their hearts full - evidenced by their warm handshakes. Got reminded of VIBGYOR, of the words family, community, challenges, standards, adequacy et al and Carnaticas executive team Ramanthan, Sashikiran, Sowmya and the indefatigable Jayashri showed guts and seemed to possess a decent pulse rate. These “Combo” (to use the state of the art expression) events - if they were successful must have been discussed threadbare before they attained finality. Were there some hiccups? The mikemen were adequate, save the few minor flaws here and there and you could afford to ignore it. Other hurdles there could have been some but was never reflected in the sessions.

Hold it ! - the write-up is not over. These donor passes and all that - One word, the entire concerts and events were in fact free. It requires real tact and sagacity to achieve this. Do it the same way, if not in a better manner year after year. Oh! You've already started planning! Say Something! Here is a wish-list for the next programme. Let us have Hariprasad Chaurasia, Kalyanapuram Aravamudhachariar, K S Goplakrishnan, Panthula Rama, Manda Sudharani, Nedhanuri, Manjunath and Nagaraj and Pattabhiram Pandit....Granted?

Performer’s Perspective
of 1st Session of 54th Sawai Gandharva Sangeet Mahotsav 2006
Thursday, 7th Dec 2006 at New English School, Ramanbaug, Pune
By

PUSHKAR LELE
(http://www.pushkarlele.com/)
The 54th edition of the prestigious and much awaited Sangeet (and not just music!) Mahotsav began at the New English School Ramanbaug, Pune at 4 pm sharp with the mellifluous strains of the shehenai by Sh. Shailesh Bhagwat.
Music lovers had already started trickling in the huge pandal right from the beginning, determined not to miss even a moment of the four day musical feast! Areas for the chair ticket holders and the Indian sitting (Bharatiya Baithak) were neatly marked with efficient volunteers displaying prominent badges ushering the Rasiks to their delegated seats. Four big screens (sponsored by SHARP) caught the action on the stage and beamed it for the larger mass of audience outside the pandal and for those who were too far from the stage to see things clearly. The picture quality was really good as was the sound system by ‘Swaranjali’. Although the huge traditional backdrop bedecked with beautiful flowers for the stage area was missing, it was more than compensated by the neat flower arrangements at the front side of the stage was well as the ceiling. A separate area was created for the press photographers and media representatives in order to cause minimum trouble to the performing artiste on stage as well as the audience. ‘Please NO FLASH’ boards were prominently displayed in this area to avoid frayed nerves mid-concert by the artiste.
Sh. Shailesh Bhagwat., disciple of the shehenai maestro Ustad Bismillah Khan Sahib began his concert with Raag Hansakinkini, a raag expressing the feelings of a newly wed bride. He played the panghat dhun in this raag reminding the keen audience of Pune of the late Ustad. After the alap, he presented two gats in Madhya and drut teentaal. Bhagwat followed it by a dhun in dadra Taal lending an auspicious start to the grand musical extravaganza. He was accompanied by Mukand Pandit (disciple of Pt. Nayan Ghosh) on the tabla, Dinesh Mavdikar on the surpeti and the duo of Prem Shankar-Vijay Shankar as shehenai support. On a personal note, I fail to understand why a shehenai recital should always be scheduled as the first item on the first day, year after year. Why should the shehenai be always associated with ‘auspicious beginnings’ when the legendary Ustad Bismillah Khan devoted all his life to establish the shehenai as an independent ‘solo’ instrument. Why should the shehenai for once not be treated like another solo instrumental performance as the second or third item instead of the first? I hope that someone points this out to the organizing committee and they for once by this simple gesture give shehenai the status that it truly deserves.

The second artiste who came on stage was Meena Phatarpekar, grand-daughter of the doyen of Kirana Gharana Pt. Saraswatibai Rane. Phatarpekar has been fortunate to learn from two of the great legends of namely Hirabai Badodekar (although briefly) and her equally gifted sister Saraswatibai Rane. At a time when music as a career or profession or even as a hobby was not considered respectable, especially for Brahmin women, this fiery sister duo traveled the length and breadth of India singing together on stage! However Phatarpekar seemed to lack any of these legacies. She stared with Raag Yaman Kalyan (a wrong choice of raag for the time of 5pm and unfair to other artiste to follow later) and sang the khayal ‘Salona Re’ in Vilambit Jhoomra followed by ‘Mangala Gao’ in drut teentaal. This was followed by an equally lack-luster thumri ‘Aba ke Saawana ghara aaja’ in Mishra Khamaj (Madhya gram) set in Deepchandi (14 beats). She was accompanied on tabla by Sameer Shivgaar and on harmonium by Pramod Marathe. Nirmala Kasbekar and Dr. Mugdha Bapat accompanied on the Taanpura.

After this ‘the less said the better’ performance, it was the turn of the Sarangi duo Dilshad Khan and Shabir Khan, the nephew and son of Ustad Sultan Khan. Belonging to the 10th generation of Sikar Gharana, this disciple duo of Ustad Sultan Khan began with Raag Madhuwanti. The leisurely alap deftly spanning all the three Saptaks was followed by two gats in Vilambit teentaal and drut ektaal. Both had a very good tone of their Sarangi with Dilshad’s being a little more ‘open or fuller’. However one could not miss the nazakat of Shabir either. Both of them complimented each other skillfully from start to finish and displayed no ‘I am going to eat you’ tendancies! Their deep understanding of the accuracy of sur, raag, laya and their instrument was noteworthy. Mid concert, out of the blue and much to everyone’s delight Pandit Bhimsen Joshi’s car drove close to the stage! Because of his ill-health Panditji was not able to sing last year. But in spite of his frail condition, ‘the lion’ drove down majestically to catch a few moments of the Sangeet yadnya which he had started 53 years back. He waited patiently in the car till the duo finished raag madhuwanti. He addressed the audience while still sitting in the car through a microphone and live camera’s catching the master speak. Pandit said that it is only with the help and blessings of the people and artistes from all Gharana-s that the Sawai Gandharva Sangeet Samaroha has reach the 54th year and expressed the hope that even after his death the festival shall continue to grow and remain as dear to people as it is today. It was a poignant moment filled with emotions. Dilshad and Shabir came down and sought Panditji’s blessings, a touching gesture indeed. After his car drove back, the duo continued with their performance and presented a dadra (Pata raakho na raakho tehari marji) in Raag Pilu. They were ably accompanied on tabla by Mukesh Jadhav. Thus it was a melodious sahavadan and not a Jugalbandi as most refer to it.

The fourth item of the evening was Shashwati Mandal, the grand-daughter of late Pt. Balabhau Umdekar, the erudite exponent of Gwalior Gharana and a court musician of the Gwaliorstate. Shashwati was initially trained by her mother Smt. Kamal Mandal and later by Pt. Balasaheb Poochwale (especially for tappa gayaki). Currently she is taking guidance from Mira Rao (disciple of Pt. Kumar Gandharva) and also from Gundecha brothers. Mandal began her concert with Raag Saraswati. She presented a khayal ‘Aye Darabaar’ in Vilambit ektaal followed by a drut bandish ‘Jage more bhaag ghara more aaye’ in teentaal. She explored the various nook and corners of Saraswati through a systematic aalapi and bol-banav. Mandal has a naturally gifted pliable voice which she uses to her advantage effectively. Her sargams, cascading brilliant taans in one breath, lay Kari and clear pronunciation were the highlights of her presentation. However she needs to pay a little more attention to clarity of notes in higher tempo. Later she presented a difficult tappa in Raag Sohoni- ‘Vari Ve Mukhada Sohavana’ in Punjabi theka followed by a Tarana in ati-drut teentaal. After a prodding ‘please-keep-singing-till- the next-artiste- is –ready’ from the organizers, she sang a Meera Bhajan ‘Sawariya mhane aaja rangili ganagaur ji’ a famous record by Kumarji. She had the well balanced accompaniment of Ramdas Palsule (senior disciple of Pt. Suresh Talwalkar) and Suyog Kundalkar (disciple of Dr. Arawind Thatte) on the harmonium.

The day reached its musical pinnacle by the masterly recital of the maestro of Rampur-Sehswan Gharana Ustad Rashid Khan. He began his concert with Raag Bihag and presented four compositions in it. The khayal ‘Mero mana’ in Vilambit ektaal was a leisurely exploration of bihag with shudda nishad-shuddha madhyam phrases being used prominently in it. This was followed by ‘Aeri ma surajhana’ in Madhya jhaptaal, ‘aali ri alabeli’ in drut teentaal and a Tarana again in drut teentaal. Ustadji’s sargams, taan patterns and nom-tom were simply electrifying. After this he presented a bandish in Raag Jog in Madhya jhaptaal-‘Batein banavata’ and finally by the thumri ‘ Brija ko chali Radha’ in Bhairavi set to addha teentaal. He had the expert accompaniment of Yogesh Samsi on tabla and Sudhir Nayak on the harmonium. The concert went well upto 11.30pm as the honorable Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri. Vilasrao Deshmukh sent a message that the 10pm Supreme Court deadline has been giving an extention till 12am for the dates of 7th, 8th and 10th of the Sawai Mahotsav.

Before the actual performances began, two minutes silence was observed to pay tribute to late Bismillah Khan, music director Naushad, Kirana Gharana doyen Saraswatibai Rane, exponent of the bhendi-bazaar Gharana Pt. Trimbakrao Jannorikar, lavani artiste Kamal Sonawane, bhajan singer Shankar Golwalkar, sitarist Sudhir Phadke, Sarangi exponent Madhukar Khadilkar, senior vocalist Babanrao Navdikar, music experts B.V. Bhatawadkar and S.G. Madhavbhatt. A calendar titled ‘Gandharva Parva’ featuring photographs of various eminent vocalists better know for their ‘gandharva’ titles like Balgandharva, Kumar Gandharva, Chota Gandharva, Bhu Gandharva etc was released by Sumantai Kirloskar. The calendar has been the laborious work of famous photographer Satish Paknikar.

Kaushiki steals the show on day 2 of Sawai 2006

The second day of the 54th Sawai Gandharva Sangeet Mahotsav began with the vocal recital of Agra Gharana exponent Sh Kamlakar Naik from Goa. A disciple of Ratnakant Ramnathkar, V. R. Athavale, Babanrao Haldankar, Pt. Jitendra Abhisheki and Ust Aslam Khan, Kamlakarji chose to present Raag Barva. He presented ‘Birama rahe mana’ in vilambit tilwada followed by ‘Baje mori payaliya in Madhya-drut teentaal. Displaying the lay Kari typical of the Agra Gharana, he then sang the lesser heard Raag Ram Gauri. He again presented a tilwada (Hu jo gayi ri) and a drut teentaal (Sapane mein darasa gayi pitama). He concluded his concert with a bhajan Sab jhoote jaga ke ye naate. Naik could not have got a better birthday gift than the opportunity to sing in this prestigious music festival. “This is a festival where the artistes of highest caliber get to perform in front of the most discerning audience of Pune. I am truly fortunate to have got this opportunity”, said Naik. He was ably accompanied on tabla by Bharat Kamat and Suyog Kundalkar on the harmonium.

Next came the grand-daughter of Sawai Gandharva (wife of Prabhakar Deshpande), Padma Deshpande. Deshpande had the good fortune to learn from great gurus like Hirabai Badodekar, Saraswatibai Rane, Digambarbua Kulkarni, Duttasingh Geherwal was well as Vijay Karandikar and Shrikant Deshpande. She started her performance with the popular raag of Kirana Gharana Shuddha Kalyan. The khayal ‘Tuma bina kaun’ in vilambit ektaal was followed by ‘Mangala bajore bajo’ in drut teen Taal.  She wound up the concert with the popular Natyageet ‘Rupabali to narashardula’ from Sangeet Swayamwar. She was accompanied by Prashant Pandav on tabla and Dr. Arawind Thatte on the harmonium.

Next was the turn of the much awaited maestro Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma. Before Panditji came on stage the audience was informed that the eminent film director Dr. Jabbar Patel would be shooting the concert live for a Films Division documentary on panditji and that the audience should co-operate for any inconvenience. It was on the express insistence of panditji himself that Dr. Patel did the shooting. “When people ask me, specially  from the electronic media, that does anyone still listen to classical musicm I tell them to come and visit Sawai once. Only those who have never listened to classical music ask such questions. And once they come to Sawai, they never ask it again!”, said panditji. As panditji began  his concert with his favorite Raag Rasik Priya (beloved of the connoisseurs), Swarabhaskar Pandit Bhimsen Joshiji’s car drove towards the stage. There was a loud clapping in the audience and made one remind of the reverence and high regard that this great man commands. Bhimsenji remained silent and heard Shivji’s apal-jod-jhala in rapt attention. He then drove back just as silently as he came. Shivji then presented three gats in Madya-rupak and the next two in drut teentaal. After the mesmerizing Rasik priya, he presented a pahadi-dhun based on an old dadra. He had the expert accompaniment of Aneesh Pradhan on the tabla.

The next artiste and performance can easily be called as the pinnacle of the festival till now. A superb performance is always expected from the senior maestros. But when someone so young hits the audience, electrifies them to a very high plane and leave them speechless, then it is much more commendable and praise worthy. That was Kaushiki Chakrawarty (daughter of Pt. Ajay Chakrawarty) for the audience! The coy girl, dressed in a red-green sari make a pretty picture on stage bedecked by confidence, a sweet smile, calmness and humility. Armed with a supple flexible and blemish less voice, a natural flair for speed, superb voice modulation, accuracy of notes, an easy range of 3 Saptak and an deep understanding of Laya Taal, she simply floored the audience. Kaushiki selected Raag Raagshri and presented three compositions in it namely ‘Mohe Saba Sukha Deho Karataar’ in vilambit ektaal, ‘Mora mana harawa’ in drut teentaal and ‘Raag ranga raagini’ a bandish by her guru Gyanprakash Ghosh in drut ektaal. She then presented a popular pahadi-dadra ‘Rangi Saari gulabi chunariya re’. On the insistence and demand of the audience she sang a Ganpati Bhajan- Gaiye ganapati jaga vandana in Yaman-Kalyan. She caught the right mood of the dadra and her murkis and khatkas added a new dimention to the masterly performance. She is one young talent that’s surely going to make it big real soon! So watch this space! She was accompanied on tabla by Ramdas Palsule and Sudhir Nayak on the harmonium. Srinivas Joshi, son of Pt. Bhimsen Joshi later came on stage and said that Kaushiki has left the audience simply speechless. A truly brilliant performance indeed!

The evening’s last artiste was Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj. He rendered the soulful ‘Jay jay siddhi’ in vilambit ektaal in Raag Jayjaywanti followed by Darasa deta in drut teentaal. He followed this by ‘Yeri ma sakala bana gagana’ in Madhya-teen Taal in Raag khamaj-bahar. He ended the concert with two bhajans. He was accompanied by Kedar Pandit on tabla and Appa Jalgaokar on the harmonium.
