Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia Casts A Spell
World-renowned flautist Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia swept Hyderabadis off their feet Friday night with a spell-binding performance at Ravindra Bharathi.
Titled "Smritiyaan" (memories), the concert was a nostalgic trip down memory lane indeed, with each attendee reporting a different experience of hearing the maestro weave his magic live. It was stunning how, despite being accompanied by just a few basic instruments, Chaurasia showcased a stunning range in the complexity of the ragas he played on the flute and splendid breath control despite his advanced age.
The maestro even interacted with audiences during the concert, talking to them of his early days and his journey into music. Later, he obliged fans who spanned all age groups with autographs and selfies, much to their delight.
