Poorvi Raaga - Bengaluru
Poorvi Raaga, a rhythmic evening as peaceful as sunrise!
A musical concert that featured some of the best classical singers and best instrumental artists in classical music. This special musical event was a tribute to the legendary singer, Sri. Late. Dr. C. Ashwath – a perfect blend of a music composer, a singer and a lyricist, who is known for his passion in traditional music, light music and folk music. It was an event of blissful music that rendered its purpose for a noble fundraiser to empower the children and women!
A pioneer of Kannada "Sugama Sangeetha" (light music), the versatile singer had over 75 albums to his credit. He is, perhaps the only Music Director in Karnataka, to have carved a niche of his own in all three fields that demand music as an element of expression: Theatre, Sugama Sangeetha and movies. Some of his notable compositions include the composition of music for Mysooru Mallige – a classic work of noted poet K.S. Narasimhaswamy and his compositions of Kannada saint Santa Shishunala Sharifa's works.
