New Delhi, Oct 10: The exquisitely lit lawns of the India Intertiol Centre here resounded with classical ragas rendered with both flair and fidelity by young vocalist ndini Bedekar in a touching tribute to the life and times of her Guru, the legendary Kishori Amonkar. Gasaraswati Kishori Amonkar, who passed away in April this year at the age of 84, was one of the towering figures of the Jaipur-Atrauli Ghara; but she transcended the conventiol framework of gharas evoking various feelings or ‘bhaavas’ within the ragas in her renditions. Bedekar picked up the finer aspects of the Jaipur-Atrauli Ghara through her tutelage under Amonkar as per the “guru-shishya” tradition, often accompanying her on the tanpura during concerts. The concert on Monday evening, organised by the Raza Foundation as part of the IIC’s ongoing Festival of the Arts, was a befitting homage to this tradition. (IANS)
