Pandit Jasraj: Screening of the Performances (120 mins)
An NCPA Presentation
Pandit Jasraj is a living legend of Hindustani music. Trained by his father Motiram and later groomed by his elder brother Maniram, he represents the Mewati gharana. The inimitable lyrical style developed by the celebrated octogenarian torchbearer of the gharana is highly ornamental and emotionally appealing. Spiritual underpinnings of the maestro have influenced his repertoire to include pads from the temple music of haveli sangeet, in which there is a cultural overlap between bhakti and the classical tradition. The screening features four ragas: Jog, Malkauns, Kalavati and Miyan Malhar, followed by two bhajans.
