Kolkata, May 08 (IBNS) What happens when an ace Odissi dancer-choreographer like Dona Ganguly team up with a tabla exponent like Pandit. Prodyut Mukherjee on stage? Well it creates a jugalbandi that hold audiences in thrall. Kolkata recently witnessed it.
In their first joint collaboration, Dona Ganguly, who is the wife of former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly, and Pandit Prodyut Mukherjee regaled Kolkata audience at Kala Mandir on April 29 last.
While Donas dance represented the pure guru Kelucharan Mahapatra gharana, the performance of GIMA Award Winner Tabla maestro Pandit Prodyut Mukherjee took the jugalbandi to a different height.
Mukherjees solo performance and his unique percussion and strings fusion concept band- Rhythm Express, mesmerised the audience. His skills in rhythmic expression through Tabla surprised the audience as he played sound effects that resembled two trains travelling side by side.
The show also had solo performances of popular singers like Rupankar Bagchi besides other performers, thus gifting audience a wonderful evening.
