Sitar Recital by
Pandit Krishna Bhatt
Watch Sitar Maestro Krishna Bhatt presenting Raga Gauri Manjari, a rare evening raga composed by his legendary guru, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. Raag Gauri Manjari is a complex raga, a mixture of four to five ragas.
The musician attempting such an intricate raga has to do a delicate balancing act, a significant challenge in itself. It’s for us as an audience to wonder at the creative genius of the performing maestros who play such convoluted notes while saving it from other influences. Indeed it is a pleasure to experience how multiple ragas blend into each other to create a new face, personality, and mood.
In addition to Raag Gauri Manjari, Krishna Ji also presents composition in Desh Raag. Experience the unique vibrancy of this traditional raag with Khamaj Thaat, which originates in folk music.
When stalwarts grace the stage, the magic unfolds!
Pandit Anindo Chatterjee’s electrifying tabla accompaniment elevates this concert significantly. The on-stage chemistry between the stalwart artists is palpable, and no wonder it resonates with connoisseurs alike.
Every concert at Sangeet Sabha presents this intimate experience where you can engage with great artists and enjoy authentic music.
