BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE TO LATE PADMA BHUSHAN PT NIKHIL BANERJEE
FEATURING MANY LEGENDARY MAESTROS AND OTHER MUSICIANS FROM INDIA
It will be an unmissable broadcast.
Nikhil Ranjan Banerjee (Bengali: নিখিল রঞ্জন ব্যানার্জী (14 October 1931 – 27 January 1986) was an eminent Indian classical sitarist of the Maihar Gharana. A student of the legendary Baba Allauddin Khan, Pandit Nikhil Banerjee was known for his technical virtuosity and clinical execution. Along with Pandit Ravi Shankar and Ustad Vilayat Khan, he emerged as one of the leading exponents of the Sitar and is regarded as a legend of Indian classical music. He was a recipient of the Indian civilian honour of the Padma Bhushan.
For Banerjee, music-making was a spiritual rather than a worldly path:
"Indian music is based on spiritualism; that is the first word, you must keep it in your mind. Many people misunderstand and think it has got something to do with religion—no, absolutely no! Nothing to do with religion, but spiritualism—Indian music was practised and learned to know the Supreme Truth. Mirabai, Thyagaraja from the South, Haridas Swami, Baiju—all these great composers and musicians were wandering saints; they never came into society, nor performed in society."
