Revisiting a divine tradition

DNJAI91915 | 8/9/2018 | Author : After Hrs Correspondent | WC :250

A two-day programme at Jaipur’s Jawahar Kala Kendra attempts to revive Haveli Sangeet, a form of Hindustani classical music

Considered part of a rich historical tradition, Haveli Sangeet emerged from the restrictions imposed on Hindu temples that led to deities being worshipped in private mansions, or havelis. This form of devotional music, once highly reverred, finds few takers now. An upcoming programme at Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK) aims to revive this semi-classical form of Hindustani classical music with talk sessions and musical performances.
The two-day Haveli Sangeet programme will be organised at JKK on August 10 and 11. The programme will be divided into two parts — talk sessions in the morning from 11am to 1pm and musical evenings from 6pm, over both days. This form of music was sung in havelis and temples for the worship of Lord Krishna.
