Third edition of ‘The Hindu November Fest’ promises more variety

The third edition of The Hindu Friday Review November Fest promises an assortment of music in order to satiate the appetite of the discerning music aficionados in Chennai. A total of seven concerts will be held from November 10-18.

Announcing the Fest for this year, V Kalidas Vice President-Advertsing, The Hindu, said “The Hindu Friday Review November Fest serves as an ideal aperitif to the feast of music in Chennai, during the big festival season beginning December 15 which signals the mellow Tamil month ‘Margazhi’. The November Fest is unique as there would be an eclectic array of musicians who are wizards in their respective genre. Thus the series of seven concerts will sweep across Hindustani classical, Carnatic music, Ghazal Bandi, fusion, Indian fusion, international music and a mix of rock, jazz, pop, Latin rhythms from the Delhi-based rock band Mrigya.”

The November Fest will kick off with a classical raga recital by the father-son duo from Pakistan, Ustad Fateh Ali Khan and Rustam Fateh Ali Khan, on November 10. This duo from the Patiala Gharana will be singing in Chennai for the first time. Performing the Hindustani classical with unswerving allegiance to tradition will be the Pandits from the Benares Gharana – Rajan and Sajan Misra. Adding romance to the Fest will be the pair that launched ‘Madirakshi’, which is a blend of padam and piano – well-known vocalist Sikkil Gurcharan and Western pianist-composer Anil Srinicasan. Another attraction of this year’s Fest is the crossover band from Korea, The Forest. This group, which has performed in many countries, is coming to Chennai for the first time.
