Concept and Curator for the World Tour: Saloni Gandhi

Padmabhushan Pandit Rajan & Pandit Sajan Misra
The inimitable duo of Indian classical music Padmabhushan Pandit Rajan & Pandit Sajan Misra do not need any introduction for the Indian music lovers. They are one of the leading Indian classical vocalists today, with a distinguished lineage. This duo has a huge following of Indian as well as International music lovers. Their music carries the sound of the most ancient city on the earth – Kashi. And their music embraces those ancient sensibilities which are rendered in contemporary settings to reach out to the world.

Pandit Kumar Bose, the legendary tabla Maestro and probably the face of the Banaras TablaGharana at the moment have been accompanying PanditRajan and PanditSajanMisra for 30 years now. Their on stage chemistry creates a beautiful tapestry of musical saga worth experiencing. Pandit Bose is an able student of PanditKishanMaharaj and not only holds a long career of solo tabla playing but also has accompanied some of the greatest musical minds of Indian Classical music.

Sumit Mishra: Hailing from a prestigious family from Banaras, Sumit Mishra will be accompanying on the Harmonium, has learned his music from his Father Pt. Sohan Lal Mishra & his uncle Pt. Mohan Lal Mishra. His family is said to be the torchbearers of the Banaras Gharana of India. Sumit has performed with many eminent musicians in India and abroad. And his name is in the first few promising harmonium players in India

Saloni Gandhi: The concept of an extensive world tour is conceived and actualized by Ms. Saloni Gandhi. As a profession she is working with the traditional weavers and crafts people of India and has a textile studio in Delhi which she runs with a friend and partner. Her passion about Indian Music prompted her to envisage and work on this mammoth venture.

Its more than a concert: Bhairav Se Bhairavi Tak is not just about music concerts, it is about reaching out to likeminded people in various parts of the world, it is to have a dialogue with senior musicians of different countries, it is about workshops with interested people, lectures for knowledge seeker, and obviously meditative concerts to take us to the world of peace and bliss. To make one more concentrated effort to reach out to the world with our astounding legacy of music.

This journey of ragas commenced from Banaras, on 18th Nov 2017, home to the legendary Hindustani Vocalists to PanditRajan&PanditSajanMisra, and where they have learnt their music and imbibed the amazing spirit of Banaras. This tour is officially supported by the Government of India and ICCR.

The Concept of Bhairav Se BhairviTak is conceptualized by Saloni Gandhi. The idea is to present the spectrum of morning to evening Ragas (from Raga Bhairav to Raga Bhairvi). It is also to encourage morning & afternoon concerts apart from generally organized evening concerts. The science of notes, for creating ragas according to the time & season, is unique to the world of music. In this tour we have succeeded to have evening/night concerts but also morning and afternoon concerts to give the audiences an opportunity to listen different Ragas which are less explored or presented. The chaos, strife, war, communal tension, the increasing chasm between humanities was the other major reason to conceive this world tour. Music being a language that connects without boundaries is a humble effort to reach out and connect the worlds through the medium of music.

Antarnaad Events came into existence with the mission to take the rich legacy of Indian Classical Music to the far off corners of the world as well as the remotest towns in India. To promote Indian Classical Music amongst youth not only in India but abroad, through concerts, lectures workshops, dialogue and interactions with the students of music and audiences. ‘Bhairav Se BhairaviTak’ – the world tour is their flagship project.
