In view of fostering the uniqueness of Indian art and culture, the Legends of India – a non-profit organisation takes the privilege of organising ‘Baithak’, which will induce a direct interactive session with Ustad Aashish Khan and spectators. The event is to feature a classical musical performance of the maestro where he would mesmerise all with the golden strings of his Sarod, which would be an absolute treat for eyes and ears for the audience. Accompanying him on stage will be his nephew, Shiraz Ali Khan on Sarod. The evening will also see the participation of Kathak maestro Pt Sandeep Mahavir.
Their recent collaboration with Amar Ujala Gharana aur Parampara, shall give a new impetus.
“Music, being the purest form of art, possesses a power to transcend all barriers of language, religion, geography, and hierarchy”, said Dipayan Mazumdar, Founder Chairman of Legends of India.
