Melodious 'Ragdari and Mukesh' songs session held

The late Kamal Tambe was a dedicated singer belonging to the Jaipur Attrauli gharana. She was a disciple of the veteran the Moghubai Kurdikar. One has seen her giving vocal support to Moghubai. Tambe could move about without any difficulty in the orbit of any raga which Moghubai choose to sing in her concerts. Tambe did not marry or raise a family of her own. After her death a few years ago, they set up a fund to commemorate her and scholarship was announced to deserving students who wanted to pursue music.

The scholarship is now handled by Shivaji Park Nagrik Sangh. This year the scholarship was awarded to Devashree Navghare who hails from Nashik. She is a pupil of the well known singer Manjiri Asnare Kelkar. Devashree is young and full of energy. She is pursuing her degree course in Sanskrit. She sang the raga 'Gauri' which was in the typical Jaipur gharana mould. Her fast taans exuded energy and youthful power.

Madhavi Nanal, senior singer of the Paluskar school, presented an interesting theme based programme. She sang different compositions of the music missionary Vishnu Digambar Paluskar. They were in varying musical forms. There was a dhrupad in the raga 'Malkauns', there was a tarana as also tappa. Nanal is studious by nature. It is creditable that the compositions which were only languishing in text books were brought to life by her. 'Ragdari and Mukesh', a listening session with actual song and raga demonstrations was held under the auspices of 'Sargam' at the Mahila Sangh Hall at Vile Parle (E).

The response of the audience was simply overwhelming. Mukesh, the popular playback singer of the yesteryear has sung many songs based on different ragas and depicting different moods. The songs revealed the 'dard' in his voice and how it reflected the mood of the raga which the music composer choose for him. Songs based on 'Yaman', 'Darbari',' Bhaivari', 'Todi' and such ragas with eternal ragas were played and relative bandishes were sung by the presenter.
