After years of sadhana and exploring the finer textures of the art to find their niches, maestros Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia and Pandit Birju Maharaj have established themselves as influential soloists. They have put melody and rhythm to such improvisatory uses that Chaurasia makes the flute sing rather than just blowing tunes while Maharaj has taken Kathak many steps forward by infusing a new energy into its bols and chakkars.

Enjoy a fusion of footwork and flute as Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia and Pandit Birju Maharaj come together for Tridha at The Hindu Friday Review November Fest.
