BHUBANESWAR: Three genres of Indian classical music – Carnatic, Hindustani and Udra Paddhatiya – were presented at the annual Tridhara national classical music conference at Rabindra Mandap here on Sunday.

The festival was organized by city-based Swar Ranga, which imparts classical music training.

“The objective of the concert is to promote and popularize the Udra Padhatiya style of classical music, which is originally from Odisha. Besides, we wanted to demonstrate similarities and differences between the three styles of classical music,” said Pandit Damodar Hota, instrumental in developing the classical style of music.

‘Raag Kedar’ was presented in the three classical music styles Carnatic, Udra-padhatiya and Hindustani by Tedapalli Loknath Sharma, Damodar Hota and Raj Kishore Acharya respectively.

“By inviting exponents of Hindustani and Carnatic music, I tried to convince them of the uniqueness of the ancient Udra style,” Hota added.
