Classic and contemporary

The Come Together series aims at presenting an experience of Indian classical music which is contemporary, cool and speaks to new listeners

First Edition Arts (FEA) presents Come Together, a new musical series that offers a young and contemporary experience of Indian classical music presented as solos and duets in short sets in a nightclub environment.

Teaming up with Cafe Zoe in Lower Parel, the Come Together series (named after a popular Beatles track by John Lennon from the album Abbey Road) features contemporary Indian classical musicians on the Sarod, Sitar, Violin, Flute, and the Tabla. It is a series of four concerts, each quarter with a different trio. The musicians are dressed in jeans and

T-shirts but the music will be rich in improvisation and in keeping with the artistry of Indian classical music. The aim is to build wider interest in classical music without taking the typical “fusion” route.

Devina Dutt, director, First Edition Arts says, "We believe Indian classical music is stunningly beautiful, creative and exciting. It has acquired an unfair reputation for being boring or intimidating especially in the minds of young people. Through the Come Together series (with four concerts through the year) we are presenting an experience of Indian classical music which is contemporary, cool and speaks to new listeners and young urban listeners who have never had a chance to discover just what this music is.

“We are not taking the fusion route. We believe that gimmick-free raga music, performed in an all-new setting and free of some of the rigid protocols of the typical classical music concert, will draw listeners to the music. Just five minutes of listening to this music is enough to hook you for life. The series will feature some wonderful young musicians who have a modern worldview and can communicate their art intelligently to new listeners without dumbing it down. We believe there is a great audience for this out there.”

At the first concert series, the musicians are: Abhishek Borkar (Sarod), Nandini Shankar (Violin) and Ojas Adhiya (Tabla). A new trio of musicians will present classical instrumental concerts as solo and duet sets every quarter.

The musicians will interact freely with listeners, who will be encouraged to take a closer look at the gorgeous instruments, ask questions and have a bite with the musicians.
