Sufi flavour marks 14th Annual Sangeet Mahotsav

New Delhi, June 5 (IANS) Singer Kavita Seth's soulful voice and percussionist Bickram Ghosh's talent gave Delhi audiences a flavour of Sufism at the Legends of India 14th Annual Sangeet Mahotsav.

The two-day musical extravaganza, held at the Kamani Auditorium from June 1-2 here, saw the two artists enthralling the audience with their performances.

The opening day was marked by Seth's rendition of compositions like "Iktara" and "Tum hi ho Bandhu".

Ghosh, on the second day, introduced a 'Sufusion' first time concept at the fest.

'Sufusion', a jamming session, was set on perfectly by Ghosh, who teamed up with a new find, Sufi singer Parvati Kumari, for it. This fusion had different Sufi styles merged with riveting rhythms and age-old traditions reinterpreted through the help of technology-induced sound designing.

The evening was dedicated to the late sitar maestro Ravi Shankar and filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh, who died recently.
