Dr. Dhananjay Daithankar on Santoor & a Bharat-Natyam performance by his wife Mr. Swati is at the very basis of the extra-ordinary concept of Nupur-Nad. Both husband & wife have proved themselves in their own renowed fields at a solo level. After the years of performances the idea of a combined programme struck them & their brain child "Nupur-Nad" was born. It has received a great response from the organizers as well as audience where ever it has been performed.
