20-hour classical concert celebrates time-zone-wise raagas

Wednesday, December 05, 2018

Mumbai music-buffs will witness Hindustani classical music's first-of-its-kind unique 20-hour-long concert, where 16 maestros from the world of Indian classical music will perform jugalbandis. The concert, which will celebrate rare ragas, will begin at 6 am on Saturday and culminate at 3.00 a.m. on Sunday at the Shanmukhananda Auditorium in King Circle. Conceived by Durga Jasraj, '8 Prahar' will celebrate music of every Prahar (the day broken into three-hour segments from dawn). It's a joint initiative of Art and Artistes and Pancham Nishad to showcase the rich treasure of ragas in Indian classical music at the apt applicable time of the day.

The musical spread will not only bring rarely heard ragas vocally, but also instrumentally, as the flute, violin, santoor, sitar, and slide guitar will all spin their magic. Durga Jasraj reminisced, "As a child, I remember attending concerts which would go on till the wee hours of the morning. One got to hear so many different beautiful ragas. But now, since all concerts only happen in the evening. This was what led me to think of the concept." Shashi Vyas of Pancham Nishad Creatives said, “The entire structure of the music in India is based on the time frame divided into two parts — from sunrise to sunset and from sunset to sunrise” Session 1: - 6.00 a.m. to 4.15 p.m.

Shahid Parvez & Sanjeev Abhyankar (Sitar & Vocal), Rajan & Sajan Mishra (Vocal Duet), Satish Vyas & Rupak Kulkarni (Santoor & Flute) and Jayteerth Mevundi & Praveen Godkhindi (Vocal & Flute).

Session 2: - 5.00 p.m. to 2.30 a.m.

Debashish Bhattacharya & Milind Raikar (Slide Guitar & Violin), Sawani Shende & Shahswati Mandal (Vocal Duet).
