Jugalbandi of the titans
Two legendary musicians from two different streams of Indian classical music will entrall their Bangalore fans next Saturday.
THE LEGENDS of Carnatic and Hindustani music, M. Balamuralikrishna and Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, will perform a jugalbandi in Bangalore this month in what is being anticipated as one of the most unforgettable classical music concert ever the city has seen, at the third Premaanjali Festival.
The doyens of music are coming together in concert to help an institution working for homeless children.
The Premaanjali Educational Trust, a charitable trust that runs a home for homeless children providing them education, food, clothing, and rearing them in a "near-home environment", will be the benefactor of the concert.
Premaanjali has been providing a value-based education for the last 16 years, incorporating home-stay programmes where children get to stay with the trustees during vacation, celebrate birthdays and festivals with them, and mingle with their family and friends.
Over the last two years it has organised the Premaanjali Festival featuring Mallika Sarabhai and Naseeruddin Shah, hoping not just to raise funds but also to cater to music lovers of Bangalore.
This year, the festival will be held on October 16 at 7 p.m. at the Koramangala Indoor Stadium that has a seating capacity of 4,000. For details, contact 25567333.
