Sounds From The Desert
April 26, 2019, 7:30 pm
Happy to introduce you to ShowCase Events’ new production Sounds From The Desert – a beautifully curated 90mins journey of the true soul of Rajasthani Folk music- LIVE!! This show showcases the different instruments and folk songs in a theatrical pattern. The Show premier which happened in Mumbai on January 25th at the Royal Opera House, was very well received and has got very good reviews from the audience, the press and very senior music authors.
It is an opportunity to experience sensitive instrumentation and sounds showcased with care. There will be full promotion and media exposure, as we have a very good PR company on board and social visibility of course. We are now bringing this show to Delhi on April 26th at The Sirifort Auditorium.
The show is the experience of a lifetime as it takes you on a journey across the sands of Rajasthan with traditional, little seen instruments playing folk songs, all rendered by 17 amazing musicians led by multi-instrumentalists and vocalists par excellence, Kutle Khan. Backing him are musicians from legendary families such as Nathulal Solanki from Pushkar on Nagaras, Darre Khan of Jaisalmer on the Khamaycha carrying forward the legacy of the inventor of the instrument, his father, Padmashri Sakar Khan. Other musicians on instruments like the Khartal, Morchang, Bhapang, Alogoza, Dholak and Sindhi Saarangi hail from Bikaner, Barmer, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Jaipur. The traditional folk dance- the Ghoomar is presented by the famous Sapera family ladies.
We carefully selected the 18 musicians from the different traditional families of Rajasthan and curated a show which showcases their talent.
This show is curated and directed by Atul Churamani and hosted by Mihir Joshi. A singer as well as a musician, Khan not only plays the Khartal but also the Dholak, Morchang and Bhapang, proving that there’s no percussion he can’t play. He also sings soulful renditions. He performed with Amit Trivedi at the prestigious Paddy Fields Festival in 2018.
