Mumbai’s NCPA presents Bhatkhande Parampara: A lec-dem by Ramdas Bhatkal
The music tradition propagated by the legendary savant Vishnu Narayan Bhatkhande (1860 -1936) had a strong pedagogical and theoretical approach. Having set up music colleges in Gwalior, Baroda and Lucknow, he mentored disciples like S N Ratanjankar and G N Natu, who were also sent to train with reputed vocalists of Agra and Gwalior gharanas respectively. This duo, later trained musicians like Chidanand Nagarkar, S.C.R.Bhat, K.G Ginde and Dinkar Kaikini, exposing them to both the gharanas regularly.
In this lec-dem, Ramdas Bhatkal along with Pranati Mhatre and Sarangee Ambekar will trace the evolution of Bhatkhande parampara through bandishes of Bhatkhande (Chatur or Hararang), Faiyyaz Khan (Prempiya), Ratanjankar (Sujan), Nagarkar (Chit-Anand) and Kaikini (Dinrang).
When: June 14, 6.30 pm onwards
