“The sam as a shastra brings discipline to any kind of creative repertoire. It works as a tool to aid an artist in the unending vista of exploring the bhaav of an atmosphere. It beautifully establishes the completion of one dialogue – and gives me a definite point to start a new one,” Tejashree’s take on how sam, the first beat of a rhythmic cycle, plays such a critical role in channeling your thoughts and creative expression while performing.
G5A forum is proud to present Morning Riyaaz, a series of concerts featuring artists from different schools of music. Through this series, we hope to revive the relevance of pre-dawn discipline and invite audiences to experience the nuances within Indian classical music. This session we have Tejashree Amonkar, a proponent of Hindustani Khayal music of the Jaipur Atrauli Gharana, who concentrated her creative aspirations towards music under a guru none other than her grandmother Gaana Saraswati Late Smt. Kishori tai Amonkar. Tejashree is accompanied by two of the most promising emerging musicians in the industry – Siddhesh Bicholkar on the Harmonium and Yati Bhagwat on the Tabla.
Morning Riyaaz is supported by the G5A A.R.T. Fund and the Kshirsagar Apte Foundation – we’d like to thank all the donors for their consistent support.
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.
