A Presentation by Lalith Rao & Disciples 

The Agra gharana has been blessed with a galaxy of brilliant composers who have given new perspectives and dimensions to the raga and the bandish. Among them, Faiyaz Khan (Prem Piya), Vilayat Hussain Khan (Pran Piya) and Khadim Hussain Khan (Sajan Piya), who all lived in the 20th century, are shining examples. Vilayat Hussain Khan was a prolific composer whereas Faiyaz Khan and Khadim Hussain Khan seem to have composed whenever a need arose. While their compositions exhibit distinguishing features of the Agra gayaki, each composer brought his own perspective and flavour to his compositions. Lalith Rao is a senior vocalist and guru trained under Khadim Hussain Khan. She and her three disciples: Bharathi Prathap, Manohar Patwardhan and Nishant Panicker will present select compositions of the above-mentioned stalwarts, highlighting the variety and imagery, and exploring similarities and differences.
