In a candid conversation sitar artist Soumitra Thakur said, “It was an honour to have performed for Colours of India 2022, an evening of Indian Classical Music organised by Swaranjali Delhi. Despite of heavy lashes yesterday in Delhi there was a very good turn up in the audience and the audience consisted of all music learners of Delhi. I played Raag Bageshree, where I started with Alap, Jor and Jhala and then played 3 compositions. I was accompanied on the tabla by maestro Durjay Bhaumik. The event was exceptionally curated by sitar maestro Subarata De and his team. My heartiest congratulations to all the members of the society Swaranjali for organizing such a successful event.” Every year Swaranjali hosts Gharana Festival, Pravasi Bharatiya Sangeet Nrittya Mahotsav, Shraddhanjali, Murchhana Festival to encourage budding artists.
