Come Saturday and the state capital will host the first monthly music in the park with two santoor and tabla virtuosos confirming their participation in the event.
Sources in the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) said santoor player Pt. Tarun Bhattacharya and tabla maestro Abhijit Banerjee will perform at the Indira Gandhi Park here. The show, which is free for all, will start at 6pm.
National and internationally-acclaimed artists will be invited on the second Saturday of every month to put up a performance here. “We have been taking a host of initiatives to make people’s lives stress-free, especially after Bhubaneswar was accorded a ‘Smart City’ status. The music show boasts of two weekly programmes, Ekamra walk and Patha Utsav. The latter is a street festival organized at Janpath on Sunday,” said a BDA official.
