Continuing the New North and South programme of music from South Asia, we bring a very special matinee show from two of the most outstanding musicians working in Indian Music today – sitarist Shri Chandrashekhar Phanse and tabla player Saleel Tambe.

Born in a musical family originating from India, Saleel’s father is Dr Shashikant Tambe; a well-known vocalist and his mother Mrs Jayashree Tambe; an established Kathak danseuse / reputed teacher. Since childhood, Saleel has been associated with musical stalwarts like Pt. Bhimsen Joshi, Pt. Jitendra Abhisheki, Pt C.R Vyas, Pta.Rohini Bhate-just to name a few. Initiated into music by his parents, Saleel received advanced tabla training from Pt Ramdas Palsule-disciple of Taalyogi Padmashree Pt Suresh Talwalkar.

An ardent believer in the saying “Music resonates from within”, sitarist Shri Chandrashekhar Phanse is a true innovator. Experience the melodious sound of his ‘singing sitar’, which renders popular Bollywood songs of the yesteryears as well as the recent past. Recently he has composed and orchestrated ‘SHIRUTI SANGAM’, a concerto, which beautifully amalgamates the best of classical Hindustani and Carnatic Music.

This is a seated show. Presented by Band on the Wall and Raagam.
