Event Details

By Shalmalee Joshi

An NCPA Presentation

The advent of the rainy season is richly celebrated in Hindustani music. Ragas of the Malhar family and myriad genres of semi-classical music like thumri and dadra are inseparably associated with this season. Several allied folk forms like kajri, sawan, jhoola, hindola also express the pain of separation and the joy of union with the beloved in the month of Sawan.

Initiated into music by her mother, Shalmalee Joshi went on to learn for many years with stalwarts like Chintubua Mhaiskar and Ratnakar Pai, thus acquiring an in-depth understanding of the khayal traditions of Gwalior, Kirana and Jaipur-Atrauli gharanas. An ‘A’ grade artiste of All India Radio, her repertoire includes both classical and semi-classical forms such as khayal, thumri, tappa, bhajan and natyageet. In a career spanning over 30 years, Joshi has received numerous awards and accolades.

In this recital, Joshi will present a bouquet of classical and semi-classical compositions to usher in the lively season of the rains.
