One World Fusion 2015 is the musical event of the season. It presents the doyens of Hindustani classical in an interesting and novel ‘fusion concept’. It is bringing the greats of Hindustani Classical to the land of the Nizam. One World Fusion will be happening at the Ravindra Bharati in Hyderabad, 18th December 2015.
Maestros like Pandit Ronu Majumdar (Flute), Dr. Mysore Manjunath (Violin), Prodyut Mukherjee (Tabla), Tarun Bhattacharya (Santoor), DSR Murthy(Mridangam), Rajesh Raj Bhatt(Djembe and Pakhawaj), Rohit Kulkarni(keyboard), Gopal Burman (Sreekhol) are slated to play together for the first time ever.
With the masterful trio Tarun Bhattacharya, Ronu Majumdar and Mysore Manjunath playing together we can expect some pleasant surprises. Pandit Tarun Bhattacharya, the santoor maestro from Kolkatta has played at some of the most prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Palace-de-beaux (Brussels), Theater- De-La-Vile (France), Apollo Theatre (Spain). Ronu Majumdar is a flautist par excellence and has proven his inclinations towards fusion with collaborations such as Tabula Rasa with Bella Fleck that won him a Grammy nomination. Mysore Manjunath the prodigy who gave his first concert at the age of 8 is now an established and well-respected name in the annals of music, his creative improvisations and spontaneous playing have won the hearts of many a listener. These greats will be performing together on stage for the first time ever and it promises to be a landmark collaboration.
The concept is to give a new generation of listeners a taste of Hindustani classical in a way that appeals to them. The blistering success of shows like Coke Studio which feature fusion and classical artists in a brand new avatar prove that there is a wide audience for the craft. It takes a lot of learning to appreciate raga in the age of rock, but fusion music is definitely taking the world by storm.
The One World Fusion event is in aid of children with autism at Care4Autism Center, Hyderabad in association with SimplyGive Foundation. If you are a connoisseur of Hindustani Classical, or just a curious listener learning the ropes, this is one concert you should not miss.
