Indian music is always in tune with nature and the seasons. The pulse of India throbs in its culture, heritage, philosophy, music and its dance. It is in this realm of living that India exposes herself, without consciousness. Its music is part of the society; it has adorned the courts of the kings. But it has never entirely forgotten its spiritual origin and nature. No doubt, music reflects the heart of India. Indian classical music has evolved from the country's different races, cultures, legends, mythology and ethnicity and has played a key role in defining the South Asian identity. In modern times exponents of this rich classical tradition have experimented with complex and refined art forms to create a world of rhythm (TAL) and melody (RAAGAS) through vocals and a number of locally developed instruments that are simply unique to India.
There is a melody for every season & one of them is CHAITI. The name CHAITI is derived from the Indian month of CHAITH which is the summer time. CHAITI is a form of Indian semi classical music (instrumental & vocal) that alludes mostly to springtime transiting to summer.
CHAITI ARTS FESTIVAL is an effort to showcase the rich musical & cultural heritage of India. Initiated and organized by CHAITI ARTS FOUNDATION, a non-profit organization based in Shanghai
For CHAITI 2019, the renowned Indian Sarod artists Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Amaan Ali and Ayaan Ali will be the lead artists accompanied by Satyajit Talwalkar & Parthasarathy Sridar on the Indian percussion instrument TABLA. These musicians are highly awarded, globally recognized and considered among the top rated maestros of their field from India who have enthralled music enthusiasts across continents.
