The event took place in the presence of a captivated audience who gathered to commemorate this special occasion.

Apoorva Gokhale and Smt. Pallavi Joshi, who enthralled the audience with their rendition of classical Hindustani music. Their melodious voices resonated throughout the venue as they explored the intricacies of two captivating raagas – Kedar and Jog Kauns.
In their rendition of Raaga Kedar, the duo performed the timeless Bandish “Jogi raavala jo bilam rahe” as the Bada Khyal in Taal Tilwada, followed by “Goond laaori malaniya” set to Madhyalaya Teentaal. The graceful transition between the bandishes and their mastery over the complex taals left the audience spellbound. The exploration of Raaga Kedar continued with a Tarana set to Teental, showcasing their impeccable command over classical compositions.
The rendition of Raaga Jog Kauns was equally enchanting, with the artists’ rendering the Bandish “Peera paraayi jaane nahi” to the mesmerizing beats of Teentaal. Smt. Apoorva Gokhale and Smt. Pallavi Joshi’s performance was a true testament to their dedication and passion for Hindustani classical music.
In this event, the audience was also treated to the divine melodies of Pt. Nityanand Haldipur’s flute, accompanied by Pt. Sadanand Naimpalli on tabla. His mastery over the instrument was evident as he presented Raaga Desi to the tranquil beats of Vilambit Ektaal. The enchanting tunes of the flute resonated through the venue, leaving the audience in awe of his musical prowess.
