Two establishments keep the Indian classical music flame alive with free concerts every Sunday. Drop in for an earful of bliss

Kala Bharati
This "mid-town hub of cultural synthesis" as veteran critic and Kala Bharati secretary Prakash Burde calls it, holds Hindustani classical and Carnatic music concerts every Sunday morning.

Although Karnataka Sangh, the socio-cultural centre that houses this spacious auditorium was founded in 1933, Kala Bharati's Sunday concerts began a good 60 years later.


Tabla whiz Ustad Zakir Hussain has featured at Swarsadhanotsav, the
annual music festival of Swar Sadhana Samiti


"The main objective of the Sangha is to show how there has been a gradual ideological change and expansion from the Kannada and Kannadigas to Marathi and Maharashtrians and finally to India and Indians."

Today, you can catch vocalist Milind Chittal of the kirana gharana. He will be accompanied by T Ranga Pai on tabla and Hemand Hemmadi on the harmonium.
Every Sunday at 10 am
At: Karnataka Sangha, Dr Vishveshawarayya Samarak Mandir, CHM Marg, Moghul Lane, Matunga Road, Mahim
Call: 24377022


Swar Sadhana Samiti
Long before tabla wizard Zakir Hussain and sitarist Arvind Parekh were names to reckon with, they would perform at Swarsadhanotsav, the three-day annual music festival of the Swar Sadhana Samiti. Their success is proof that the music club set up in 1961 by Parsi sitarist Keki S Jijina to promote talented Indian classical musicians, was victorious in its endeavour. Another hit are the Sunday concerts featuring promising young musicians, once every month at Mumbai Marathi Sahitya Sangh Mandir. To date, Swar Sadhana Samiti has over 500 such concerts to its credit.
At: Purandare Hall, Mumbai Marathi Sahitya Sangh Mandir, Dr Bhalerao Marg, near St Mary's High School, Gaiwadi, Girgaum
Call: 23856303
