This edition being the first after Kishori Tai's sad demise is a special tribute to this legendary and phenomenal artiste who with her lifelong meditative pursuit of music, not only carved a niche for herself but also created a new path for others to follow.
Besides presenting performances of senior and upcoming artistes, this edition will also feature the following :
Natyasampada Pratishthan was founded in 2006 by late Shri. Prabhakar Panshikar, the legendary actor and producer of the Marathi theatre. Our objectives include research and promotion of Theatre, Sanskrit Literature, and Indian Classical and other music. Our goals also include spreading the rich culture of Indian arts and music to the masses including the young generation. With these goals, we have started organising “Gaana Saraswati Mahotsav” since 2013. The event has been named after Gaana Saraswati Padma Vibhushan Smt. Kishori Amonkar to honour and celebrate her contribution in the field of Indian Classical Music. Artistes who have performed in all the editions have included senior legendary artistes as well as talented upcoming artistes. As part of our goals of spreading music to the masses, we have also organised lectures by Smt. Amonkar herself on different scientific and aesthetic aspects of Indian Classical Music. We intend to build upon such initiatives in future.
