An NCPA Presentation
Artistes: Gulzar, Shantanu Moitra, Papon, Ambi Subramaniam, Prateek Srivastava, Mehtab Ali Niazi, Sridhar Parthasarathy, Abhay Sopori, Lakhan and musicians of the Symphony Orchestra of India
We have the honour and privilege of ushering in the 76th year of Indian independence with Gulzar, the celebrated poet, writer, lyricist and film director. This living legend was born in pre-independent India, at a place that is in today’s Pakistan.
On the other hand, Shantanu Moitra, the renowned music composer known for his many landmark Bollywood films, represents the generation nurtured in the environment of post-independent India.
With his works in Hindi, specially written for this grand occasion, Gulzar will take us through the journey of 75 years of free India. Around these verses, Moitra will weave original compositions specially created for this landmark event. An ensemble of vocalists and instrumentalists from the world of Indian art and folk music will perform the compositions. In some parts, musicians of the Symphony Orchestra of India will also join in.
During the celebration of 50 years of India’s independence at the NCPA, legendary artistes, including the greats like Ravi Shankar, Bismillah Khan, Girija Devi and Zakir Hussain, had performed here.
Gulzar’s poetry and Moitra’s music will take the story forward on the same stage.
