An NCPA Presentation in association with Kumar Gandharva Pratishthan

Kumar Gandharva (born on 8th. April, 1924) was a legend in his lifetime. Known for his radical thinking, he was a non-conformist who made bold attempts at assimilating the best, from both art and folk music traditions. No wonder that his name is etched in golden letters in the annals of Indian music as one of the most outstanding vocalists and composers of the 20th century.
