INTACH Cultural Affairs : Invite you to an evening of Hindustani Light Classical Music with Rekha Surya on 15th March at 5.30pm at INTACH Back
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to an evening of Hindustani Light Classical Music with Rekha Surya on 15th March at 5.30pm at INTACH.
Hindustani light classical music bridges the gap between pure classical and mainstream music. In this musical genre, weaving variations of a word or phrase into a song displays the singer’s range of imagination. This elaboration of a word or phrase is the idiom that defines this genre of music.
A practitioner of the Lucknow Gharana of North Indian Music, Rekha Surya has preserved the legacy of her legendary guru -Begum Akhtar. She also learnt under the tutelage of another legend, Girija Devi of the Benaras Gharana.She integrates both styles of singing into an individualistic style.
Rekha Surya will present medieval mystical poetry of North India from the 13th to 18th century.The ancient literary traditions she draws from have both South Asian Muslim and Hindu cultural references. Her explanation before each song demystifies Hindustani Light Classical Music for the uninitiated audiences.
