Event Details

An NCPA Presentation

Artistes: Gulzar, Shantanu Moitra, Bombay Jayashri, Papon and Sanjeev Abhyankar with Ambi Subramaniam, Pratik Srivastava, Mehtab Ali Niazi, Sridhar Parthasarathy, Lakhan and musicians of the Symphony Orchestra of India

Orchestral arrangements by Kaizad Patel

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 now in 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.

Presenting work specially written for this grand occasion, Gulzar will take us through the journey of 75 years of free India. Around his verses, Moitra will weave the magic of 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.

To celebrate 50 years of India’s independence, legendary artistes, including Ravi Shankar, Bismillah Khan, Girija Devi and Zakir Hussain, had performed at the NCPA. Gulzar’s poetry and Moitra’s music will take the story forward on the same stage.

Box Office now Open.
