An exceptionally fluent, lyrical vocalist, Sanhita Nandi is a prominent North Indian classical performer in the Khayal and Thumri genres. She has been praised as a brilliant exponent of two Kirana gharana (musical lineage) pillars: alap, the opening exposition of a performance’s raga (melodic system), and sargam, singing the names of the notes of a composition with virtuoso ornamentation. Nandi will be accompanied by Ramchandra Joshi on harmonium and Aqeel Bhatti on tabla.
