Sitar recital by renowned Asad Gulrez Khan (Mumbai, India)

Artistic Activities

Renowned sitarist Asad Gulrez Khan and his disciples of the ‘Mewati Gharana’ performed unplugged at the New Acropolis center in Mumbai. It was a spirited performance which lasted over 2 hours!

The first part of the evening consisted of a solo musical performance by one of the disciples – Mandar Namjoshi, for about an hour. Asad ji spoke of some tenets of the master – disciple tradition in the Indian musical “gharanas” and he touched upon elements of respect for the audience, their fellow performers and even to their instrument. With a concise explanation of some basics of music composition, the floor was left open for questions. Asad ji answered questions on a variety of topics related to music, philosophy and how the two are closely related.
