Vocal Concert by Ashwini Bhide Deshpande will be presented on Friday, May 2, 2014 at 8pm at CPCC, Charlotte. Accompanists: Tabla: Sanjay Deshpande and Harmonium: Tanmay Deochake. Amongst the vocalists of the today's generation of the Jaipur-Atrauli tradition of Khyal singing, Ashwini Bhide-Deshpande is an artiste of great caliber. She has been performing in a number of prestigious music conferences in India for over fifteen years and have had successful concert tours of Europe as well as of North American continent. Ashwini began her training at the age of five under the guidance of Pandit Narayanrao Datar. After graduating with a "sangeet visharad" from Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, she started receiving guidance and meticulous attention from her mother, Smt. Manik Bhide, a great Khyal singer herself. Ashwini has inherited all that was best in her mother's style and was able to add a lot to her repertoire with great sensitivity and intellect. Presently she is receiving guidance from Pandit Ratnakar Pai, a veteran of the Jaipur gharana. Systematic exposition of the Raag structure, brilliant phrasing, variety of taan patterns, ease and grace in all of the three octaves mark her singing. She does not merely present the gammer of a Raag, but can build it up into an aesthetically pleasing experience. A resident of Mumbai, Ashwini is a graduate in Microbiology and also holds a Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry. Very recently a book of ‘Bandishes’, written & composed by Ashwiniji has been published which is now in great demand by all the music lovers & the students. Tickets are free for IPAAC members, general $35, students with ID $15. For more details visit www.ipaac.org.
