EP 266 . 22 Feb 23
Dr. Keshavchaitanya Kunte joins us on Audiogyan. He is a Harmonium player, composer and musicologist. Keshavchaitanya Sir received extensive training in Hindustani Art music, for Harmonium under the able guidance of Dr. Arawind Thatte. For vocal music from Pt. Mohanrao Karve and Dr. Ashok Da. Ranade for musicology.
We’ll try to document Keshavchaitanya Sir’s thoughts on parampara (tradition) and paddhati (methodology) in the context of Hindustani Music. Just as a disclaimer, these subjects are studies of a lifetime and it’s almost impossible to pack in an hour or so… Please consider these as conversation starters.
Also before we begin, a special thanks to Dakshina Dwarka Foundation and Baithak Foundation for introducing me to Chaitanya sir. I met him at a workshop organised in Pune in 2022 on Talking with Tradition. This Audiogyan will be in Marathi and English
