Guided by the timeless elements of raga and taal, Indian classical music is celebrated as a living tradition transcending generations. And what distinguishes Raagdari GENNXT is that the platform provides opportunities to emerging talent on an independent stage, ensuring their performances resonate distinctly. The event bridges the gap between preserving tradition and nurturing the future of classical music.
The day-long schedule comprises captivating sessions, each promising a voyage through the enchanting world of Raagdari, featuring both vocal and instrumental performances. The meticulously curated repertoire promises diverse and vibrant ragas of Indian Classical music.
"Our mission is to ignite a passion for music that transcends generations. We should explore opportunities to establish a dedicated platform for our young talents — one that operates independently, enabling the gradually built-up audience to evaluate their performance without the influence of established senior artists. This strategic approach serves a dual purpose: it allows our audience to discover and appreciate budding talent and fosters a mindset where the quality of music takes precedence over an artist's fame or seniority,” says Shashi Vyas, Director of Pancham Nishad.
