A musical concert heralding the full moon

Young Harpreet impressed with his voice and practice at the concluding baithak of ‘Under the Banyan Tree on a Full Moon Night’ concert series

A three-part monthly series of classical and folk music concerts, ‘Under the Banyan Tree on a Full Moon Night’, heralding the full moon in the months of April, May and June concluded this Purnima, at 1AQ Mehrauli, near Qutub Minar, with an immersive musical experience for the music aficionados of Delhi.

The earlier baithaks had the audience witness artistes performing under an artistically lit banyan tree with minarets of the iconic Qutub Minar as the backdrop, but due to the weather forecast of rains, this time it was arranged in the hall of the adjacent art gallery .The baithak style seating arrangement, with a few rows of benches at the back for the elderly rasikas, created perfect ambience for the poetic charm of the Sufi and folk music by Harpreet and Mir Mukhtiar Ali respectively, who established an instant rapport with the doting audience, offering them an intimate experience of Sufi poetry and music.
