Shyam Rang - Parthiv Gohil & Group
Hindustani Vocal Music Recital
Saturday, 1st September 2018 – 6.30 pm
Supported by Rukmani & Kishan Daiya Foundation
With Janmashtami just a few days away, we present Shyam Rang to celebrate the legend of Krishna – “the dark one” – through music. Indian music has a huge repertoire of compositions, whose textual content is dedicated to the amorous exploits of Krishna – the cowherd of Vrindavan, and also to the devotional and philosophical thoughts associated with his divine love. The theme has also engendered many beautiful songs that are featured in Hindi films. Parthiv Gohil began his music training at a young age and went on to become a playback singer including films such as Devdas, Saawariya, Vada Raha and many others. His other projects include participation in the iconic song ‘Phir mile sur mera tumhara’ and MTV performances with reputed artistes. In this thematic concert, Gohil will present a bouquet of traditional as well as film songs dedicated to Krishna.
