Baithak – an immersive concert with Kaushiki Chakraborty
Kaushiki Chakraborty began her training under her mother Smt. Chandana Chakraborty. Subsequently, she had the privilege of becoming the “Ganda Bandh” disciple of legendary Guru Pandit Jnan Prakash Ghosh, before becoming a disciple of her father, vocal maestro Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty, under whom she continues to learn. Later, she was also fortunate to get Taalim in Carnatic Classical Music from Padmavibhushan Pandit M. Balamurali Krishna. Her taalim under her gurus, especially her father, has ensured that she has equal command over the various vocal forms that fall under the umbrella of Hindustani music.
In 2015, she formed the first-ever all-women Indian Classical music ensemble SAKHI, which includes Indian vocal, instrumental, percussion, and Kathak dance and brings all these forms together to celebrate womanhood through their musical language.
The concert will be hosted at the G5A Black Box which has been carefully designed for a pristine auditory experience.
G5A is a not-for-profit organization that encourages contemporary art and culture that is experimental and courageous, good governance that is inclusive and participatory, and ecosystems that are equitable and resilient.
