A one-day festival of music and dance is being organised in the city. It will be bringing together renditions of Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Chhau and Odissi along with Hindustani vocal accompanied by tabla and sitar. The disciples of the various gurus at Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra will be performing. This is the second edition of the festival.
‘We got very good response last year. Since then we decided to do this festival annually,’ said Shobha Deepak Singh, director, Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra, who are the organisers of the event.
‘The main idea behind organising the festival is to showcase the Guru Shishya culture and also the teaching faculty and the students under them. At the festival you would be able to see the finest students perform,’ added Singh.
The performers include the disciples of gurus like Sonia Roy, Manjeet Singh, Jyotika Dayal Paust and Gundecha Brothers (in Hindustani classical vocals), Charanjit Soni (light classical vocal), Ram Mohan Misra, Shikha Khare, Urmila Nagar, Raksha Singh and Munna Shukla (in Kathak), Biswajit Roy Choudhury (sarod), Virendra Malaviya (tabla), Justin McCarthy and Priya Srinivasan (Bharatanatyam), Priyambada Pattnaik (Odissi) and Shashidharan Nair (Chhau).
