Acharya Gokulotsav Goswami Maharaj and Pandit Dalchand Sharma

5 09 2009

It was a mesmerizing evening with Acharya Gokulotsav Maharaj and Pandit Dalchand Sharma on 4th Sep at India Habitat Center, New Delhi.

I had the good fortune to attend the program and listen to the scholarly authoritative and beautiful recital by Goswami Ji and equally beautiful pakhawaj recital by Pandit Dalchand Ji.

Goswami Ji began the event with singing bada khayal, a self composed composition in Raag Shuddha Kalyan in vilambit ek taal and later in Tri taal (accompanied by Sh. Vinod Lele on tabla and Vinay Mishra on Harmonium), followed by another composition in Raag Gayand Malhar (also known as Miyan ki Malhar).

After Khayal singing, Goswami Ji invited Pandit Dalchand Ji on stage for pakhawaj accompaniment for Haveli Sangeet. He started with a traditional ‘pad‘ by Baiju in taal choutaal and then the his famous “Saaranga Nayani” in which the variation of Raagas and Taals were extremely difficult but at the same time equally beautiful. Pandit Ji demonstrated his outstanding command over pakhawaj and maintained the composition despite the frequent variation in taals.

Later Pandit Ji told me that the show was pure extempore and he did not get chance to practice with Goswami Ji even once. It shows his authority over the taal & laya & also his understanding of the intricacies of Dhrupad & Haveli Sangeet.

I’ve attached few pics that I’ve clicked during the show, hope you’ll enjoy watching them as much as I enjoyed clicking them.
