The third version of ‘Swaradhyay’ will goal to convey again the tradition of ‘baithak’-style Hindustani classical music and pay tributes to eminent musicians late Pt. Nikhil Bannerji and late Shri Prashant Thakur.
The occasion, to be held right here at The Pink Lotus Academia on January 17, will witness performances by famous vocalist Ujwal Nagar and Sitarist Adnan Khan. It is organised by Rasa Siddhi, a collective of Sitar artists led by Shri Soumitra Thakur, which goals to reintroduce the historic tradition of Baithak singing again to the bigger public’s eye.
“I am really excited to perform at Rasa Siddhi event especially in these tough times when everybody is restricted in their homes. This is a great initiative by Rasa Siddhi where Baithak style is being promoted because this was the original style in which music was presented during old times,” mentioned Delhi-based vocalist Nagar.
“Music is celebrated and revered for not only being entertaining but highly meditative and this was the sole purpose of forming Rasa Siddhi to connect people and art irrespective of societal divides and backgrounds as well as to promote young upcoming musicians” mentioned Thakur, Founder Rasa Siddhi.
“With the third edition of Swaradhyay, the organization is set to celebrate the musical mastery of gifted performers Shri Ujwal Nagar on the Vocals and Adnan Khan on the Sitar Recital,” he added.
The different notable artistes performing within the occasion embrace tabla participant Saptak Sharma and Yashwant Vaishnav.
