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 last day, young tabla player Vijay Ghate will perform the second recital of the evening. Vijay Ghate is considered to be one of the most outstanding tabla players in the modern era of North-Indian music. Born in Jabalpur, Vijay showed an early inclination for rhythm which was fostered by his family. He moved to Mumbai to study with Pandit Suresh Talwalkar, an icon amongst tabla players of India, and one the most progressive and profound thinkers on tabla playing.

Ghate has been performing since the age of 16, and has toured worldwide with most of India's prominent musicians. As an accompanist, he is a favorite with many of India's leading players including Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pt. Shivkumar Sharma, Kala Ramnath and Ustad Shahid Parvez. He is comfortable as a soloist as well as an accompanist to instrumentalists, vocalists and Kathak dancers, having a huge repertoire, and a capacity to improvise and to play spontaneously according to the situation.

As a soloist, he brings to the stage a distinctive vibrant energy which enhances both his creativity and technical acumen. For his solo repertoire, Vijay draws on compositions and inspiration from all of the traditional six gharanas (playing styles) in his performance.

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.
