| | Bhopal | in Bhopal

The unique jugalbandi of Hindustani classical music came to city of lakes. Classical singers Sanjeev Abhyankar and Ashvini Bhide Deshpande gave a marvelous performance at Antarang Hall on Wednesday.

Here on Wednesday, it was the second day of 10-day long 36th anniversary celebration of the multi art centre of the city. The evening of the day was adorned with the melodious and tuneful performance by the classical duo which was an enthralling experience for the classical music lovers of the city.

Sanjeev Abhyankar is a maestro from the Mewati Gharana. He learned music from his mother Shobha Abhyankar when he was a child and was groomed by Pt. Pimpalkhare of the Gwalior Gharana and Pt. Jasraj of the Mewati Gharana.

Ashwini Bhide Deshpande is an outstanding vocalist of the Jaipur-Atrauli Khayal Gayaki tradition. She was trained under Pt. Narayanrao Datar and was also tutored in stylised Jaipur Gayaki by her mother, mentor Manik Bhide.

Their concert explored the unique form of the Jasrangi Jugalbandi created by Pandit Jasraj, where a male and a female vocalist sing two different raags at the same time in two different scales, based on the Moorchhana principle of Indian classical music. The two singers gave importance to the Shadja-Madhyam and Shadja-Pancham Bhav, with the ‘ma’ note of the female voice becoming the ‘sa’ of the male voice, and the male ‘pa’ becoming the female ‘sa’.
