8th Annual Ashu Babu Memorial Concert

March 17 was my Guru-ji, Late Pandit Kaviraj Ashutosh Bhattacharya's birthday and every year since his passing his students have organised a memorial concert on Tulsi Ghat on this day. (Click here for blogs on previous years' concerts: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2007, 2006) This year's concert was, as always, very well organised and enjoyed by a full house of attentive listeners. It opened with a splendid vocal concert by Smt Kalapini Komkali, including a gorgeous bhajan in 7 beats. Then followed a powerful tabla solo in Benares style by Sri Arvind Kumar Azad, who also accompanied the final item, Kathak dance by Pt Kishen Mohan Mishra and family.
