The Red Room and Space 2640 welcome Utsav Lal, Hindustani classical pianist, with tabla maestro Enayet Hossain Khan joining him as a special guest. The concert will feature solo piano renditions of Dhrupad-influenced Alap-Jod-Jhala. Utsav will be joined by Enayet in the second half which will include traditional compositions featuring a dialogue between the two musicians. The music flows between a pure yet unapologetically original take on raga music and reinterpretations of traditional repertoire which absorbs the multidimensional outlook of both artists with simplicity, intention and grace. Instead of focusing on binaries, the work aims to explore the grey areas between Tradition and Innovation, Composition and Improvisation and what it means to play an ancient tradition with relevance today. This will be Indian classical music as never heard before.
