Mumbai: Prepare for a mesmerizing celebration of Indian classical music as "Raagdari Gennxt" returns in its second edition at the iconic Prithvi Theatre. Hosted by the Grace Foundation and thoughtfully curated and managed by Pancham Nishad, this event promises to be a day-long immersion in the mystical world of Ragas and Rhythm. The event will take place on October 8, from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., featuring a brilliant lineup of young and talented artists who represent the future of classical music.  This remarkable event is entirely acoustic, without the use of amplifiers or microphones.

Indian Classical Music is a world of emotions, woven together by two fundamental elements: Raag and Taal. When these elements come together, they create something truly magical called "Raagdari." 

In the world of Hindustani music, each performance is a unique journey filled with improvisation. Artists draw from their musical lineage (Gharana), the time of day (Prahar), the essence of nature (Prakruti), and the power of emotions (rasa) to create a musical masterpiece. But what makes each performance truly special is the artist's personal touch and expression, making Raagdari a deeply personal and unique experience for both the artist and the audience.

What sets "Raagdari Gennxt" apart is its dedication to showcasing emerging talent on an independent platform, ensuring their performances are heard distinctively. This event bridges the gap between preserving tradition and nurturing the future of classical music.

Anuja Zorkar (Vocal) & Sarang Kulkarni (Sarod), Swar Sharma (Vocal) & S. Akash (Flute), Mehtab Ali Niazi (Sitar) & Mughda Vaishampayan (Vocal) and Momin Khan (Sarangi) & Ramakant Gaikwad (Vocal) are the lineup of events on October 8.

Each session promises a captivating journey through the enchanting world of Raagdari, with both vocal and instrumental performances. 

Shashi Vyas, director of Pancham Nishad, emphasizes the importance of preserving our cultural heritage while also nurturing emerging talent. He envisions a future that values both seasoned and up-and-coming artists. He says, "Our mission is to kindle a passion for music that transcends generations. In other words, we should explore the opportunities of establishing a dedicated platform for our young talents, one that operates independently enabling the gradually built-up audience to evaluate their performance off the influence of established senior artists. This strategic approach serves a dual purpose: it not only allows our audience to discover and appreciate budding talent but also fosters a mindset where the quality of music takes precedence over an artist's fame or seniority."
