Eight Kings a play by Farhad Colabavala (7.30 - 8.15 pm)
An actor wears many hats throughout his or her career but Farhad Colabavala takes it quite literally in 'Eight Kings', a play about the eight Sultans who ruled Delhi during Nizamuddin Auliya's time.
Written and directed by Vikramjeet Sinha, 'Eight Kings' sees Colabavala channel, all eight rulers, by donning a different turban for each part. Prior to that, the play begins with the Moroccan traveler Ibn Battuta, who comes to Delhi during Mohammad Bin Tughlak's reign and is told the history of the previous Sultans by a wandering fakir.
Fusion performance by Ustaad Shujaat Khan and Rasika Chandrashekar (8.30 pm onwards)
Shujaat Husain Khan is one of the greatest North Indian classical musicians of his generation. He belongs to the Imdad Khan gharana of the sitar and his style of playing sitar, known as the gayakiang, is imitative of the subtleties of the human voice.
Rasika Chandrashekar has toured with classical musician Ustad Ghulam Ali Khan sahab as a vocalist for three years, worked with composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy as a vocalists and flautists had staged their own production at the World Flute Festival in Delhi last year. She has also worked with Bollywood composers Clinton Cerejo, Amit Trivedi, Papon and rapper Blaaze. Dubai-born, US-raised Rasika is a rarity — she's a flautist and a singer.
Together, they scale new heights in fusion music.
