In its third year, it will be hosted with a view to promote the classical music tradition amongst the wider music audience. The experience of listening to Indian classical music in an environment that allows interaction, Q&A with the artists is the USP of this music festival. Therefore, the amphitheatre, Shreyas with a seating of 2500, is an ideal place for the festival to be hosted. The director of the company, Hiren Chate, has a vision of getting into the minds of young people and help them understand the tradition & culture of classical music. This festival will be a regular annual feature and the company aims to make it a 4-day festival in the future. Workshops, interactions and jam sessions will also be introduced in the near future. This will be done to help students of music in the city of Ahmedabad to have a unique opportunity to spend time and learn from the elite musicians of our longstanding musical tradition.
This year will see Ustad Zakir Hussain headline the festival, with performances from Pandit Yogesh Samsi, Ustad Taufiq Qureshi, Tanmay Deochake, Pandit Kushal Das, Takahiro Arai and Hiren Chate also featuring.
