No shows scheduled for now
The contours of bandish vary with genres. From pure classical (art music) and semi-classical music to devotional, light and popular music, the form, idiom and treatment of bandish differs on account of varying emphasis placed on raga, tala and lyrics in each of these music forms. Added to this is the element of aesthetics that governs the individual genre. The genre specific exploration of bandish requires a performer to have an in-depth training and understanding of its aesthetics.
'Baithak to Bollywood is a collage of genres comprising those associated with intimate small gathering of connoisseurs (baithak or mehfil) as well as popular forms favored by masses at large. Endowed with an exceptionally versatile background in music, Shankar Mahadevan takes us on a delightful journey from Baithak to Bollywood, essentially exploring the beauty of bandish in numerous forms from kriti, padam, bhavgeet,abhang, ghazaltosufi, folk and film song.
