Classical Live Programme At Savai Gandharva Music Festival Pune

Chhota Gandharva

About this album

This festival of music, with a tradition of four decades, has become one of the main activities in the cultural life of Pune city.

Rambhau Kundagolkar alias Savai Gandharva was the chief disciple of Late Ustad Abdul Karim Khan. Savai Gandharva, a great khayal singer, lived not only as the torch-bearer of the Kirana Gharana but perpetuated the glorious tradition by training disciples like Smt. Gangubai Hangal, Firoz Dastoor and Bhimsen Joshi - stalwarts in their own right today.

After Savai Gandharva's demise, the Arya sangeet Prasarak Mandal in Pune decided to commemorate him through this 3-Night - long festival. For the last four decades, the tradition has continued without a break. Almost all great artists have performed on this concert platform.

Savai gandharva Mahotsav offers platform to all aspects of music - vocal, instrumental and Dance. Artists from all Gharanas have presented their art here. Inclusion of artists from the South Indian style is also a special feature of this festival. Savai Gandharva Festival has thus become a living example of unity in diversity of our culture.
