WORLD MUSIC DAY CELEBRATION
World Music Day was celebrated on 21 - 22 June, 2018. We dedicated the stage for the younger artists and invited artists from Patna who are learning as well as nurturing the art. A violin player, Swapnil Raj, nephew of Pt. Vinay Mishra, showered the essence of strings with a rejuvenating aura. Swapnil has been learning Violin for the last seven years and still continuing to learn from his gurus. He started with Raag Desh, a rainy season raag, in Vilambit and Madhya laya, Teental followed by Bihar Folk and Ramdhun.
The music recital that took place on 22 June, 2018 mesmerized everyone. The first performance was of Kishan and Rishabh Prakash, nephews of Prabhakar and Diwakar Kashyap. Both the kids are gems of the coming future. Presently they are learning from Pt. Rajan Mishra and Pt. Sajan Mishra and also taking lessons from their uncle as well. The jugalbandi started with Raag Miyan Ki Todi, bandish in Jhaptaal and Teental respectively followed by Raag Adana and a Bhajan. The level of their performance reflects their hard work and also their love for music.
The closing performance was Tabla Solo by Md. Ehtesam, a small kid of twelve years, learning tabla from Ustad Sabir Khan Saheb. Accompanying him on Harmonium was Atif Raza, also a junior artist. Ehtesam played Peshkar , Kayda, Gat and Tukra in Teental.
