NaadYatra Raag Mahotsav is a series of unique music concerts where the focus is on
expressing 'dhyaan' (stillness or contemplation) by exploring one Raag at a time.
In this event, the artists only perform with the Tanpura and Percussion instruments. We aim to bring the focus back on dhyaan with minimal diversion from instruments. The phenomenal response to the first event confirms that the audience loved our experiment!
Each artist performing at this event has the liberty to express dhyaan in their own way,
following their own approach.
In the First Event of the Naadyatra Raagmahotsav that recently concluded on 21stJuly, 2018 in New Delhi, the focus was on RAAG YAMAN – its different dimensions and interpretations were presented in the Dhrupad, Khayal and Instrumental styles with the intention to create Dhyaan.
We were honoured to have the following accomplished musicians perform at the

Gauri Pathare (Khayal Vocal)
Pandit Tejendra Narayan Majumdar (Sarod)
Padmashri Gundecha Brothers (Dhrupad Vocal)
