Chandrayaan: Celebrating India’s Journey to the Moon

18 Jan 2020

 Chandrayaan: Celebrating India’s Journey to the Moon 

Artistes: Kaushiki Chakraborty, Rakesh Chaurasia, Jayanthi Kumaresh
& Ambi Subramaniam
Duration: Around 90 min

In collaboration with Sahachari Foundation Events

Mankind has always had a fascination for the heavens and its many galaxies. It is the spirit of exploration that drives man to discover, to dream the impossible, and then to dare to travel in space.

This unusual concert pays musical tribute to India’s scientists and celebrates our recent mission to the moon. Chandrayaan’s journey, from launch to landing, is captured in this sound and light extravaganza.

The musical odyssey is conceptualised and led by renowned music composer, Shantanu Moitra, known for his landmark Bollywood films including Parineeta, 3 Idiots, and Madras Cafe. Accompanying Shantanu (guitar) in this musical journey are four exceptionally talented artistes representing the younger generation of musicians: Kaushiki Chakraborty (vocal), Rakesh Chaurasia (bansuri), Jayanthi Kumaresh (veena) & Ambi Subramaniam (violin).
All compositions are original creations based on Indian classical and folk tunes, along with chants mingled with contemporary sounds in a mix of traditional and modern, making it a unique musical experience.

Come, let’s dare to reach the moon and beyond, musically.
