Pt. Niladri’s Performance to treat Punekars at Pune smART week
Pune Smart City is launching its first season of Pune smART week starting 14th February for Punekars
Pune: – Pune smART week is a festival in its true essence, celebrating ART FOR ALL. It’s a confluence of art across various mediums and technology for creating a unique, visually enhanced experience. The event promises an array of programs, exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, competitions, talks, children’s activities, and installations in the field of visual arts & design, dance & music, films & theatre and other media.
The fest would end on a high note with the sitar maestro – Pandit Niladri Kumar – performing a “Sitar Funk”, on the 24th of February at Police Parade Ground. Pandit Niladri Kumar’s music is inviting, explosive and yet introspective. A master of traditional and classical forms, he has also rendered extremely creative and electrifying compositions on his own instrumental innovation – the Zitar. A global icon, he has won several prestigious awards, and has an immense contribution to the Indian film industry.
