On the occasion of the 35th Pandit Motiram Pandit Maniram Sangeet Samaroha 2007, The Department of Culture, together with Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj, is organising a 4-day grand music festival, from 29th November to 2nd December, at the Nizam College grounds.

Young and upcoming artistes will share the dias with some senior ones during the festival, such as flautists Rakesh Chaurasia and Shashank, vocalists Pandit Jasraj, Pritam Bhattacharya and Sanjeev Abhyankar, Hariharan, vainika Jayanthi Kumaresh, sitarist Ustad Shahid Parvez, Sufi Kathak dancer Manjari Chaturvedi, and tabla player Vijay Ghate.

Today, the inaugural day, Rakesh Chaurasia, the nephew of the legendary Hariprasad Chaurasia, will perform the opening act. Rakesh Chaurasia is the nephew and front-ranking disciple of Padma Vibhushan Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia. A child prodigy, he started training with the maestro from the age of 7, and has accompanied him the world over since the age of 13.

Like his illustrious uncle, Rakesh is known for his strong phoonk and clarity of notes. He possesses the right balance of strength and serenity, critical factors for a flautist. He gave many solo performances and has toured many countries. Rakesh has also made a foray into ghazals and film music, and is a regular featured artist in Pankaj Udhas' troupe. He tours the US regularly.

Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj has been organising music festivals every year at the Nizam College grounds, in memory of his late father and brother Pandit Motiram and Pandit Maniram respectively, since the last 35 years. His father and brother were both music professors at the Nizam College. The entry to the concert is free.

Please contact the Department of Culture at 2324-2482 for further details.
