A lecture demonstration on Theatre Music Rang Sangeet by Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee B Jayashree was organised on February 11 during the ongoing 17th edition of Bharat Rang Mahotsav at Bahumukh Auditorium, NSD Campus. Jayashree along with her troupe mesmerised the audience with her beautiful voice. Her songs were basically of company music theatre that has been sung over the years.

Jayashree, with a silver bell in her throat, initiated the demonstration with Ganesh stuti which in itself was soulful. Her guru whom she calls Putu-Putu also graced the event. She sang a few songs from her grandfather’s music company that is, Gubbi Veeranna Nataka Company. She talked about the journey of Company music – how it travelled to Maharashtra, Kolkata and had a blend of various other languages. An eclectic mix of a few numbers from eminent Kannada composer P Kalinga Rao’s Dashavataar were also sung by her. She concluded by singing her own company, Spandana Theatre’s production. She was felicitated by the famous screenplay writer Atul Tiwari.

Also a three-day seminar on Marginal in the Market of Theatre was held on the question of misrepresentation of marginal voices in fields e.g., theatre, cinema, literature and visual art among others. All the three days of seminar were divided into two sessions each.
