Aadi Anant From Here to Eternity Festival of Indian Music

The repertoire and the idiom of Punjab gharana tabla, as envisioned by the inimitable maestro Allarakha (1919-2000), will be presented on three percussion instruments—tabla, jodi pakhawaj and djembe—by the representatives of two generations. The name of Allarakha’s son and disciple, Zakir Hussain, is synonymous with the tabla today.  His virtuosic musicianship has helped raise the profile of the instrument to the highest international level. The second generation is represented by Shikhar Naad, Allarakha’s grandson, who carries forward the idea established by his father and guru, Taufiq Qureshi, of expressing the tabla repertoire on djembe, a drum of African origin.

The second generation will also be represented by six students of Ustad Allarakha Institute of Music, being trained by Fazal Qureshi, the second son and disciple of the grand master. Besides tabla, the presentation will include jodi pakhawaj, an upright pair of drums also associated with the Punjab region. The event will also include a recitation of traditional repertoire (padhant), highlighting the significance of the tabla mnemonics (bols) in composing and formation of a sophisticated language of tabla. The melodic framework is provided by Sabir Khan, the son and disciple of the iconic sarangi exponent, Sultan Khan.

Amjad Ali Khan ranks among the most popular instrumentalists of our time. A direct descendent of Ghulam Ali Khan, who is considered as an important figure in the early history of sarod, Amjad Ali Khan is hailed as the most orthodox among the traditional and the most progressive among the creative. The internationally acclaimed maestro has worked with some of the greatest artistes across the globe. Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash, Amjad Ali’s two sons and disciples, have outstanding individual accomplishments, and represent the seventh generation of the Seniya Bangash music lineage. In this recital the duo will take to the stage first, followed by the maestro’s recital including some traditional compositions. In the grand finale, the father and the sons will present a form of semi-classical composition known as ragamala (lit. garland of ragas).

When Sunday, December 2, 6.30 pm
