Gyaan Adab and Swarasudha Baithak organized an evening of soulful Indian classical music for music aficionados. The acclaimed singer Pt. Hemant Pendse, who is a disciple of Pt. Jitendra Abhisheki and has has performed nationally and internationally to the stage and mesmerized the audience with his soulful voice. He was accompanied by Shri Ganesh Tanwade on tabla and Shri Swanand Kulkarni on harmonium. Pt. Pendse interspersed his ragas with explanations and anecdotes which made the experience delightful and informative.
This evening was an initiative of Swarasudha which is a music forum aimed towards the promotion and propagation of the spirit of Indian Classical Music through various activities. The uniqueness of its activities includes organizing of various musical gatherings in form of baithaks or house concerts. Headed by renowned sitarist Sahana Banerjee, this group is a conglomeration of various talented artists who have in their own way, contributed towards the dissemination of our rich and prolific cultural heritage of Indian Classical Music. Sahana conceptualized the effectiveness of these baithaks as a pragmatic way of achieving the objectives of this noble cultural venture.
At this concert, unlike a big auditorium based gathering, the audience got an opportunity to interact with the performing artists. There were snacks and tea served which gave way to an engaging and informal musically inclined tete-a-tete.
Over a year old, Swarasudha has arranged such recitals almost once in every quarter and various musical luminaries have glorified and enlightened these baithaks through their graceful performances. This group is also committed to uphold the young generation’s musical talents through this initiative and Gyaan Adab wholly supports their endeavor.
