Jahnvi Shrimankar, Kailash Waghmare: She grew up in a large joint family in South Mumbai. He in a family of marginal farmers in Maharashtra’s Jalna district. Her grandmother introduced her to the nuances of Dadra and Dhrupad through the Haveli Sangeet. He taught himself to sing perched on a Neem tree while grazing cattle in the vast open grounds outside his village. From childhood, she was rigorously groomed to be a singer with no room for distractions. His musical influences were diverse; the courtyard outside his home was an open stage for every passing itinerant performer. She found success as a commercial singer but is still looking for her artistic “voice”; he found success as an actor but the music remains his source of creative inspiration.
Two talented performers from different backgrounds, and different life experiences, facing different artistic and social challenges, yet bound together by their love for music, come together to share their life stories with searing honesty, humour and emotion. In telling their stories, they share music from different traditions, such as folk, classical, popular cinema, political, as they sing live, accompanied by a highly skilled band. Same Same but Different is a treat for the mind and the heart!
