Description

In this special concert, two of the most remarkable woodwind instruments, the Bansuri Flute and Shenai, combine to take the audience on a melodic journey through both the Hindustani and Carnatic genres of music.

JA Jayanth is one of the rising stars on the Carnatic music scene. A prodigy, Jayanth was driven from a young age by an innate talent and enthusiasm for the bamboo flute. His spontaneity and perfect pitching, coupled with expressive and bhava laden rendering has won him appreciation from his audiences, fellow artists and music connoisseurs. Jayanth has toured extensively all over the world and has accompanied some of the biggest names in music, such Padma Vibhushan Umayalpuram K.Sivaraman, Late Sri Vellore Ramabhadran and Padma Bhushan Sri T.V.Gopalakrishnan.

Jayanth is joined in this special Jugalbandhi concert by Ashwani Shankar, a Shehnai master. The shehnai is a beautiful and rare woodwind instrument, similar to an oboe, making it a perfect accompaniment to Jayanth’s Bansuri flute. Ashwani comes from a prestigious musical family and has been learning the shehnai from his father, Pandit Daya Shankar, since a young age. Ashwani has toured extensively and touched the hearts of the listeners worldwide.

Providing the rhythmic heartbeat to this melodic masterpiece are celebrated Mridangam exponent Neyveli Venkatesh and world-renowned Tabla artiste Kousic Sen. Both accompanist are known on the international stage as masters of rhythm and their skill gives new depth and excitement to the traditional concert experience.
