mellifluous tunes: Wadali Brothers performing at Idea Jalsa.
With a heart-warming rendition of Amir Khusro’s Chhaap Tilak Sab Chheeni, the Wadali brothers infused an aura of mysticism in the atmosphere. With soothing notes and mellifluous tunes flowing in the air, Delhiites got an evening to remember as the Capital enwrapped in the tranquillity of soulful music from maestros of the music world. The Idea Jalsa ‘Music for the Soul’ over the weekend swept music buffs off their feet.

With a splendid line-up of performers, the show featured the Punjabi Sufi sensation Wadali brothers, a brass band Jaipur Kawa, Pandit Rattan Mohan Sharma and Ankita Joshi. The Jaipur Kawa is known for its spectacular display of North Indian gypsy heritage through its seven authentic Indian brass musicians. Giving a thumping start to the evening, Jaipur Kawa mesmerised the Delhi audience with its Rajasthani folk and classical music using western instruments. Carrying forward that electric vibe, Pandit Rattan Mohan Sharma and Ankita Joshi presented a mix of spiritual and Rajasthani folk songs such as Padhaaro maare des. In the month of love, Delhiites couldn’t ask for more, as the Wadali brothers sang their beautiful composition, Tu mane ya na mane dildaara transporting the audience in a state of trance.
Durga Jasraj, founder and director, Art and Artistes, said, “We are proud of the fact that we started this project which offers a platform to so many distinguished maestros from different parts of the country to showcase their musical talent. It is rewarding to experience the overwhelming response from the audience from all over the world. Needless to say, the contribution of all musicians and their enthusiasm to participate in making this project larger, makes us feel more responsible.”

Culminating its 14-city concert tour in February 2014, Idea Jalsa is a unique project which brings together legends, maestros, and rising stars of Indian music to present a rich and diverse showcase of Indian culture through live musical performances. Treating Delhizens to a fantastic music soiree, the show ended on a high note.
