An NCPA Presentation in association with Kilachand Foundation
& Ashwin C. Shroff
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 etc. also express the pain of separation and the joy of union with the beloved.
Shahid Parvez inherited the rich legacy of Etawah Imdadkhani gharana, and was trained by his father, Aziz Khan, the son of surbahar and sitar virtuoso Wahid Khan. Hailed as a child prodigy, Parvez is well-known for his extraordinary command over the instrument and mastery over both, tantrakari (instrumental techniques) and gayaki ang (vocalised idiom). A recipient of numerous prestigious awards and accolades, he has performed widely in India and in major festivals across the world.
In this recital, Parvez will present compositions to celebrate the rains.
