Lal Mati Utsav in Navi Mumbai tugs at the heartstrings of music aficionados
The two-day music carnival was organised by Ranjit Jharna Kansai Eco Foundation, in Association with Tara TV .
Well known artists performed live at the Open Air Theater, including veteran singer Haimanti Sukla and folk artist Ruma Nag from Kolkata, and Nazrulgeeti singer Fatema Tuz Zohra from Bangladesh.
The performance of GIMA Award Winner Tabla maestro Pandit Prodyut Mukherjee was one of the hugely popular programmes.
His solo performance and his unique percussion and strings fusion concept band- Rhythm Express, mesmerised the audience. His skills in rhythmic expression through Tabla surprised the audience as he played sound effects that resembled two trains travelling side by side.
The 'jugalbandi' between Pandit Prodyut Mukherjee and Sitar maestro Ustad Shakir Khan was immensely appreciated by the Mumbai audience.
