Recreating haveli on stage

After enthralling the audience in Bangalore, an ensemble of 13 artistes from various parts of India is excited to bring a unique concept for the musical enthusiasts in the capital.

Recreating the bygone era of Haveli music, where sounds of ghunghroos filled the night and strings of sarangi and beats of tabla soothed nerves, these 13 artistes will create the haveli ambience at the Kamani Auditorium on 19 July.

In a non-stop performance for two hours, the artistes will sit together and recreate the scenic haveli on the stage. The artistes are:  Khartal player Dewo Khan who performed at the Grammy, bollywood music composer and violinist Deepak Pandit, odissi dancer Arushi Mudgal, vocalist and sarangi player Ustad Fayaz Khan, sitarist brothers Rafique and Shafique Khan, saxophonist Sridhar Sagar, drummer Stanley Jeoraj, a renowned French bassist or pianist Mishko M’Ba, tabla player Pt. Arvind Kumar Azad, and kamaiacha players Ghenwar Khan and Dare Khan will mesmerise the audience.

Talking about this never done before concept, renowned actress Bhavana, creative head of hometown productions shares, ‘Haveli is a place of tranquility and beauty where decadence and indulgence reigns supreme. We have taken the spirit and ethos of haveli and channelled it into our show.’

In days of yore, these havelis were a cultural hub to emerging artistes and dancers. This is a valiant effort to bring back the forgotten memories. These havelis today stand tall having witnessed one of the most creative phase in history.
