A Hindustani music recital typically centres around one or more compositions known as bandishes. As well-structured pre-composed entities, bandishes are carriers of the compositional and improvisational aesthetics of a gharana and/or the composer. Ulhas Kashalkar is an outstanding vocalist and guru. He has had the privilege of training with masters of three gharanas: Gwalior, Agra and Jaipur. He has a vast repertoire of bandishes especially set in madhya laya (medium tempo). Because of its peculiar pace, which is neither slow nor fast, a madhya laya bandish lends itself to an interesting exposition of the raga. In this recital, Kashalkar will present a rare treat of madhya laya khayal bandishes and tarana compositions in various ragas from his rich repertoire.
