India has some of the most talented and dedicated classical artistes and yet only a few make a mark with both younger and older audiences. A journey that began in the 1980s with Hindustani classical music has now travelled across the world while being rooted in the sensibilities of traditional music on home soil.
Shubha Mudgal is known to always emphasise that music is for people of all ages. She’s had a few big tours this year in Kochi, Ahmedabad, Allahabad and some interesting projects including musical theatre. Lovers of Hindustani classical music in Bangalore have something to look forward to in the first weekend of the new year with Mudgal’s live concert.
Deeply rooted in the traditional forms and yet always trying something new, her experimentations with music are well known. It is evident that for her, it is all about the music. While she dips into Khayal and Thumri often, she is popular for pushing the envelope with her musical endeavours. In Bangalore, Shubha Mudgal will be accompanied on the tabla by Aneesh Pradhan, who holds a doctoral degree in History and is a Senior Research Fellow at the Department of Contemporary Music Studies at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. Sudhir Nayak, a disciple of veteran Pt. Tulsidas Borkar, will be on the harmonium.
