Nancy Lesh Kulkarni, a renowned Indian classical Cello artist was invited to deliver the lecture where all the students and faculty members of the University were invited. She has devoted herself to the study and performance of Dhrupad music of India on the Cello for the last 30 years. She has been the Co-Principal Cellist of the Rome Festival Orchestra, and Section Cellist with the Chicago Civic Orchestra, and Orchestra del Maggio Musicale of Florence, Italy. The event started off with an introduction and felicitation of Nancy Lesh Kulkarni by the students, which was taken forward with her musical performance in Raag Abhogi, followed by a brief talk on Dhrupad style of Hindustani Classical Music, Aalap, Jod and Jhala. After her performance, Shri Onur Dagli rendered the same Raag on Kanoon – a Turkish string instrument. It was followed by an interaction session of the artists with the students. The event focused on showcasing how Indian classical music can be rendered on western musical instruments. It opened up completely new avenues of understanding tradition and modernity in music for the music enthusiasts of AU. The Music club has set it as its plan to tie up with SPICMACAY for regular sessions on Indian Music, Dance and Heritage.
