‘Bandish and Gharana’ A lec-dem by Padma Talwalkar
Supported by HSBC
As well-structured pre-composed entities, bandishes are carriers of the compositional and improvisational aesthetics of specific gharana and /or the composer.

Groomed by stalwarts like Gangadhar Pimpalkhare, Mogubai Kurdikar, and Gajananrao Joshi, Padma Talwalkar’s music is an eclectic mix of Jaipur & Gwalior traditions. Today, she is regarded as an outstanding female vocalist and Guru.

With a focus on khayal bandishes, this lecture-demonstration will attempt to unravel distinct aesthetical ideologies of Gwalior & Jaipur gharanas through the rich repertoire of their bandishes.
