Baithak – an acoustic concert with Pelva Naik
Baithak, an acoustic concert series, creates an intimate space which embraces the subtle, unspoken moments between artist, instrument, and audience.
The concert will be hosted at the G5A Black Box which has been carefully designed for a pristine auditory experience.
Pelva is a solo Dhrupad vocalist, and has been trained under the eminent Dagar School of Music. She is a disciple of the legendary Dhrupad maestro Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar. She has also received proficient guidance from Rudraveena maestro Ustad Mohi Bahauddin Dagar.
In her music, Pelva endeavors to adhere sincerely to these traditional elements – so complete in themselves. At the same time, with the help of the great liberty that the discipline of dhrupad offers, she strives to cultivate fresh characteristics that are personal and distinct. She believes that even though performance of this unique art form is a central aspect of her ‘being’ as an artist; teaching and edification of Dhrupad must remain the most integral element for a practitioner. Teaching and sharing the nuances of the art of Dhrupad is an integral part of her life and practice.
