New Delhi: Recreating the bygone era of Haveli music, thirteen musicians from different parts of India will perform together with musical instruments like piano, tabla, sarangi, and guitar in the national capital. The programme will be held on July 19 at Kamani auditorium, where the artists will perform for two hours non- stop and recreate the magic of Haveli music on stage.

"Haveli music has often been associated with devotional music. It is losing its charm. We have tried to infuse various elements into it and have combined it with traditional instruments like the guitar and piano to make it relevant for modern audiences," Bhavana, creative head of Hometown Productions, the brain behind the programme, said.

"These havelis were once considered a cultural hub. Many emerging artistes and dancers have performed there. We plan to bring back forgotten memories with this performance," she added.
The two-hour performance will see artists like khartal player Dewo Khan, music composer and violinist Deepak Pandit, Odissi dancer Arushi Mudgal, vocalist and sarangi player Ustad Fayaz Khan, sitarist brothers Rafique and Shafique Khan, saxophonist Sridhar Sagar, drummer Stanley Jeoraj, French bassist and pianist, Mishko M'Ba, and kamaiacha players Ghenwar Khan and Dare Khan will come together to perform and enthrall.
 
"This is a better way to promote classical music, because deep classical music can become too taxing. This performance is a good blend of so many instruments that audiences will connect with it and enjoy it to the core," table player Arvind Kumar Azad, said.
