50th Udayswar at Prithvi – A Concert of morning ragas



Morning concerts have a charm that is unique. If one is lucky, one gets a chance to hear the most meditative and contemplative ragas in the most ineffable settings. Experience the same magical ambience at Udayswar@Prithvi, an Indian Classical music concert of morning ragas which uses no microphones or amplification to create a rare acoustic experience.

This weekend in the 50th concert of Udayswar@Prithvi there will be a scintillating sitar recital by a traditional artist in a modern world: Renowned sitar player Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan.

The interest and enthusiasm of music lovers and connoisseurs to attend morning concerts led Pancham Nishad & Prithvi Theatre both active in promoting and developing the performing arts to come together to present Udayswar@Prithvi, a concert series of morning ragas of the second prahar. Held on every 3rd Sunday of the month this concert series features various vocal & Instrumental artists. ‘Udayswar@Prithvi’ is supported exclusively by Bank of Baroda since April, 2017.

Indian Classical music was originally designed for intimate spaces with natural acoustics. Today it is almost impossible to experience Indian Classical Music in its original form and space, but at Prithvi Theatre one gets the closest to the private Darbar experience with Prithvi Theatre’s intimacy and acoustics.
