Hindustani Vocal Music Recital
An NCPA Presentation
The relationship of ragas with diurnal as well as seasonal time-cycles is an interesting feature, unique perhaps only to Indian music. It is believed that a raga is more effective when performed at the designated time of day/night.
Manjiri Asnare-Kelkar belongs to Jaipur-Atrauli tradition. Trained with stalwarts like M. T. Mhaiskar, M.S. Kanetkar and Kishori Amonkar, Manjiri was the recipient of the first Bismillah Khan Memorial Award for Young Musicians and Ganasarswati Puraskar. Today, she has established a significant presence on the Indian concert platform and acquired a following abroad, releasing several commercial recordings.
In this morning concert, Manjiri will showcase some morning ragas and compositions characteristic of the Jaipur Atrauli gharana, which is known for its inclination towards rare and compound (jod) ragas and the use of long complex note patterns that deploy words of the song (bol tan).
Box Office: 9th February for Members & 12th February for Public.
