The 3rd edition of the Swara Malhar music festival will bring together various shades of ‘raag malhar’ for avid Hindustani classical followers, from June 29 to July 1, 2018 and July 7-8, 2018.

“Malhar is a symbolic raag which was sung almost 1,000 years ago by Tansen in the courts of King Akbar. It is said his raag had so much strength to move nature and could make it rain,” said organiser and violin player Atul Kumar Upadhaya.

This year this music festival will be held across the city with concerts in Aundh, Sangvi, Kothrud, Swargate and Hinjewadi.

This year the festival has an interesting concept where they will have performances of ragas as per their time schedule. “There are so many morning, afternoon and night raagas which are slowly vanishing at the performance level. Hence, we came up with the concept of organising Swara Malhar at different timings,” he added.

The music festival will feature a unique combination of vocal, instrumental and dance talents like Saylee Talwalkar (vocal); Anuradha Kuber (vocal); Sheetal Kolwalkar (Kathak); and Tejas Upadhye (violin), apart from sitar maestro Ustad Shujaat Hussain Khan; Ronu Majumdar and Pandit Vishwamohan Bhatt, among others.
