Kabir under the open sky

Byculla's Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum is inviting one and all to rejoice in their lush oasis that will echo this Saturday with Pahadi music and Kabir dohas with a rocking twist

The heart yearns for the hills, soulful music and an open sky. But in reality, you can peer through only from glass panes; metallic frames of the train and be limited to squared views of the city. Break the monotony, this Saturday and breathe anew with Kabir Rock and Uttaranchali Folk in the lush, green space at Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum.

One of the first of many open space acts to come, the Museum is organising an evening to instrumentalise a space that has no parallel in the entire city. The event will be held in association with National Street of Performing Arts, an NGO - known for infusing a new energy to the public spaces of the city - particularly, Dadar, CST, Churchgate, Borivali and Bandra railway station.

Avinash S Lamba will perform Uttaranchali Folk act on his dholak

Brace yourselves for two unique sounds that will be performed by two duos of talented musicians with a prime focus on Folk music. Suresh Kala will evoke the acoustics of the mountains with his lyrical Pahadi music accompanied by Avinash S Lamba’s dholak.

Neeraj Arya and Nitesh More will croon to Sant Kabir’s dohas in a contemporary fashion while getting the audience hooked by constantly interacting with them. With More on djembe (an African percussion instrument), who was earlier a part of the Taufiq Qureshi ensemble will enthrall you with foot-tapping beats and simple yet lucid lyrics.
