‘Shāshwat’ – Eternal. Such are the music and values of the legendary musician, Pandit Kumar Gandharva. An offering of music and dance to the musical genius for the milestone of his birth centenary, ‘Shāshwat’ celebrates his exemplary life and musical legacy.

Pandit Kumar Gandharva’s timeless music bridged dualities, assimilating the best from tradition and modernity, from classical and folk traditions. Kumar-ji lives on in the hearts of disciples and rasikas through the sheer bliss of his art.

‘Shāshwat’ will be presented in two segments:

Vocal music concert – Kumar-ji’s unique compositions by his prashishyas (grand-disciples) – Sawani Mudgal and Khushal Sharma. Their guru, Pandit Madhup Mudgal is a prime disciple of Pandit Kumar Gandharva, and passed on a rich legacy that carries forward through them.

This will be followed by Odissi dance by Arushi Mudgal with live music, culminating with a composition of the maestro.
