Savai Gandharva Music Festival, Pune
This Festival of Music, with a Tradition of Four Decades, Has Become one the main Activities in the Cultural Life of Pune City. Rambhau Kundagolkar Alias Savai Gandharva was Chief Disciple of Late Ustad Abdul Karim Khan. Savai Gandharva, a Great Khayal Singer, Lived not only as the Torch Bearer of the Kirana Gharana but Perpetuated the Glorious tradition by Training Disciples like Smt Gangubai Hangal, Firoz Dastoor & Bhimsen Joshi-Stalwarts in their own right today. After Savai Gandharva’s Demise the Arya Sangeet Prasarak Mandal in Pune Decided to commemorate him through this 3 Night Long Festival. For the last Four Decades, the Tradition Has Continued Without a Break. Almost all great artists have performed on this concert platform. To all aspects of music-vocal instrumental & Dance. Artists from all Gharanas have presented their art here. Inclusion of Artists from the South Indian Style is also special feature of this festival. Savai Gandharava festival has thus become a living example of unity in diversity of our culture. This recording has been mastered on professional digital equipment, However we regret our inability to remove some disturbances, already present in the original analogue recordings made under concert conditions.
