Dr. Subhadra Desai, a disciple of Pandit Madhup Mudgal, addressed a distinguished gathering in the inaugural lecture-demonstration session of MUSIC. Dr. Desai ably bears the torch of the exceptional gayaki developed and cultivated by her Dadaguru PanditKumar Gandharva. She has recently been awarded with a Ph.D. degree by the Department of Sanskrit, University of Delhi for her study regarding the “Musical Heritage of Valmiki-Ramayana”. This was Dr. Desai’s first lecture on the theme of her doctoral thesis. A few Nirgun Bhajans and a Rabindrasangeet from the contemplative vocalist followed the lecture.
MUSIC was honoured to have the unparalleled genius of Patiala gharana in the present times, Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty, in this session. The master himself concluded the programme with a Bhagvat-stotram and a Guruvandana.
