Music As Medicine

21 Jan

If word is the doctor, music is the medicine. Young classical singer Pushkar Lele who belongs to the tradition of Pt. Kumar Gandharva, proved it beyond doubt as he rendered Kabir to the best of Indian classical musical tradition. The audience at Mumbai University’s Pheroz Mehta Auditorium sat transfixed to their seats, mesmerized by the melody of a young voice, rendering ancient words to soul stirring rhythms. An enthralling end to a spectacular day at Mumbai University.

Reaching up to Kabir

Music is the way

Music takes flight

Pushkar Lele adjusting the tanpura

Living the writing on the wall behind him

Immersed, soaked in mystic poetry

"All i have is the offering of music"
