In collaboration with Mohini Foundation
There will be screening of two documentary films:
Maestro is a documentary film on the life and times of the internationally renowned sarod maestro and guru, Buddhadev Dasgupta. He was recognised as a brilliant combination of scholarship, musicianship and erudition, with a deep aesthetic sense.
Maihar Tales is a candid conversation with the sarod maestro Aashish Khan on the precincts of Maihar temple, Madhya Pradesh, where his legendary grandfather, Baba Allauddin Khan, had worshipped on a regular basis. The anecdotes reveal Baba’s approach to teaching and the environment in his household, with references to the great musicians mentored by Baba, namely Ali Akbar Khan, Annapurna Devi, Ravi Shankar, Pannalal Ghosh and Nikhil Banerjee.
