Music: Sawai Bhimsen Sangeet Sammelan
Celebrate Hindustani music in its entirety in this special tribute, says Sunny Rodricks
A musical event that originated in Pune makes its way to Mumbai for the first time. Sawai Bhimsen Sangeet Sammelan, the classical music event organised by the Indian Magic Eye, is the beginning of the 100th Birth Anniversary Celebration (which is in 2022) of late legendary Indian vocalist and Bharat Ratna, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi. To spread the melodies of Hindustani classical music, the sangeet sammelan will have various artists, each distinguished personalities in their own field, paying tribute to Pandit Joshi. With the event being held on the auspicious day of Gudhi Padwa, there couldn’t be a better way to start the New Year... on a musical note that transcends language, culture and time? So, head over for this musical fiesta.
