Event Details

by Rajashree Kelkar Pathak

An NCPA Presentation

Shobha Gurtu (1925-2004) was known for her inimitable mastery of semi-classical forms. This recital is being presented during her birth centenary year as a tribute to her musical eminence.

Rajashree Kelkar Pathak has had the privilege of training under Sarala Bhide, a senior disciple of Shobha Gurtu, and later on, from the virtuoso herself for a number of years. Pathak is a recipient of several awards and accolades including an award from the All India Radio for thumri and ghazal and a gold medal at the Bombay University light music competition. Having equal command over khayal as well as thumri, dadra, etc., she is an ‘A’ grade artiste of AIR and Doordarshan. Besides her performances at numerous prestigious venues, she has also sung for films.

The song selection will include masterpieces of Shobha Gurtu in forms like thumri, dadra, kajri, hori and such others, highlighting the uniqueness of the celebrated master-musician.


Box Office now open.
