Maestros weave musical magic

Chandigarh, August 20
City maestros paid a rich musical tribute to the famous musicologist and performer Pandit Amresh Chandra Choudhry of Rampur gharana, which traces its legacy to legendary musician Mian Tansen.

The three-hour programme held at the Tagore Theatre, under the aegis of Triveni Sangam, proved to be a perfect confluence of vocals, instrumental jugalbandi and Bharatnataym. The programme commenced with propitious ‘vandana’ by artists led by Sumana Sanyal, the disciple daughter of Pandit Amresh.

She attempted to create a blend of tradition and modernity in a ‘fusion’ composition of Raga Megh. OC
