The Asian Music Circuit presents a concert of North Indian Classical music, exploring the gender roles within this genre and how they have changed over time.
The concert will feature Uday Bhawalkar, who will sing in the Dhrupad style, which is traditionally the domain of male singers. He will be accompanied by Chirangana Agle-reshwal, who has made a name for herself as the first well-known female performer of an instrument that until now was traditionally only played by men – the pakhawaj (a barrel shaped drum).
Also performing is Manjiri Asanare Kelkar, who sings in the Khyal style, another style traditionally associated with men. She will be accompanied by the male tabla player Sanjay Deshpande.
This concert is part of Love Classical Festival as well as Asian Music Circuit’s The Genders of Indian Music exhibition.
