There will also be a celebration of the languages of Karnataka through a Bharatanatyam presentation with rare compositions in Kannada, Konkani, Tulu and Kodava by Kumari Kiran Kamath
Born in a family of musicians, music is a divine blessing to Pravin. He hails from Dharward, a place which has given to the world many great musicians like Pt. Bhimsen Joshi, Gangubai Hangal and Pt. Kumar Gandharva. Pravin started toying with a small flute at the tender age of 3 and since then it has been his best companion. Pravin gave his first public concert at the age of 6 years and held the audience spellbound.
His father has taught him Hindustani BANSURI in KIRANA GHARAANA GAYAKI STYLE. But Pravin added the GATKAARI OR TANTRAKAARI STYLE by his own efforts and succeeded in it.
