As one of the finale events, we are hosting a grand two weekend celebration of Indian
classical music featuring the best of instrumentalists and vocalists, and this weekend saw a scintillating Sitar recital by Pt. Kushal Das and a heart-warming violin recital by the
renowned Mysore Brothers.

On Saturday, 18 th March, Pt. Kushal Das gave a Sitar recital, accompanied on the Tabla by Pt. Rajkumar Misra.
Known for his inimitable style, Kushal ji treated the audience to melodies like Raga Yaman through which he displayed his improvisation, and the rare Raga Chandra Kaushiki. The audience really enjoyed their presentation.
On Sun, 19 th March, the Mysore Brothers gave a duet violin recital accompanied by Double Mridangam by Sri M Balachandar and Sri Bangalore Prakash.
Beginning with Raga Bowli, they took the audience on a journey through various ragas and moods to thunderous applause. Their rendition of ‘Ragam Tanam Pallavi’ in
Shankarabharanam and other loved Krithis like ‘Krishna Nee Begane Baaro’ were received
with rapture. They concluded the evening with a composition by Sri Ganapathi
Sachidananda Swamiji.

On the morning of Sunday, the Mysore brothers and Pt. Kushal Das got together in a live
conversation and interaction with the audience and threw light on the deeper insights and nuances of their respective instruments. The audience had the chance to ask them
questions and gain their perspectives about their art forms.

The music festival concludes this coming weekend with a Hindustani vocal recital by Sri.
Sanjeev Abhyankar on Sat the 25th of March, and a Karnatic vocal recital by P Unnikrishnan on 26th of March.
