4th day of 34th SAPTAK Festival : 4th Jan 2014 (Ahmedabad)

Saptak – An institution that exists solely for music

Saptak celebrates the Indian classical music tradition, helps you get drenched in its richness, explore its idiom, discover its nuances and preserve its timeless essence. It’s an exploration of the world of music in its entirety. From promoting an understanding and learning of Hindustani classical music – vocal and instrumental, to forging a musical bond between all music lovers, the artiste and the rasika, and creating an archival treasure of music – it’s an entire gamut that Saptak offers.

About Saptak…

The famous Russian composer and concert pianist Sergei Rachmaninov had once said that, “Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.” To delve deeper into the world of music, a group of performers and music connoisseurs in Ahmedabad started on a journey in 1980 The quest was to connect with all those who were associated with Indian classical music – as a performer, as a student or as a rasika (listener). The initiative had the blessings of two legends of Indian Classical Music – Pt. Ravishankar and Pt. Kishan Maharaj. Nearly 30 years later, the spark of inspiration continues to burn bright, lighting up the path for newer initiatives that continue to evolve.

SAPTAK 2014 (part 1: 1st-13th Jan / part 2: 27th & 28th January)

The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Sankrant’. For Indian classical music it is ‘Sankrant’ as music tradition passes from one generation to another. This year’s programme features such a confluence of generations. Listeners will find it heartening that the classical tradition is vibrant as they watch the making of the new maestros.

About Saptak

The famous Russian composer and concert pianist Sergei Rachmaninov had once said that, “Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.” To delve deeper into the world of music, a group of performers and music connoisseurs in Ahmedabad started on a journey in 1980 The quest was to connect with all those who were associated with Indian classical music – as a performer, as a student or as a rasika (listener). The initiative had the blessings of two legends of Indian Classical Music – Pt. Ravishankar and Pt. Kishan Maharaj. Nearly 30 years later, the spark of inspiration continues to burn bright, lighting up the path for newer initiatives that continue to evolve.

I have been associated with this institution “Saptak” for the past 25 years and I am very appreciative of the work done by it. Saptak is a reputed institution which has always supported new and upcoming artists. It provides a platform for the talent of all artists to be showcased. I wish Saptak great and sustained success in their noteworthy endeavor.

Saptak Events

Saptak annual festival of music
The annual festival of music organised by Saptak from the 1st to 13th of January every year, is a musical feast that is the delight of any music connoisseur. This celebration of music is quite a unique experience in itself. The evening’s performance always begins with an emerging talent. With several luminaries in the audience, this is a grand stage for the young performer.

As the evening progresses, some of the most renowned performers in Indian classical music take the stage. The rasikas often leave in the early hours of the morning with a Raag Baghesri, Malkauns or Lalit still humming in their ears. It’s a celebration of music in its purest form. There are no tickets, no reservations, and one gets to be in the hall only through invitation. With the hall brimming over with highly knowledgeable and sensitive music connoisseurs, the performers are motivated to put forth their best performance at Saptak.

What makes the annual fare a memorable one is that it scales over popular demands to provide a rich bouquet of experience. While the audience gets treated to vintage khayal performances from the established maestros, they also have an opportunity to experience the dhrupad gayaki, thumris, rajasthani folk music, instrumental recitals of sitar, sarangi, flute, the mohan veena, rudra veena and percussion recitals on the tabla, pakhawaj and even the mridangam by the great contemporary musicians and musical experimentations of fusion . With nearly 125 top artistes and about 50 performances spread over 13 days (15 Baithaks including 2 morning baithaks), the music lovers from all over India and abroad converge at the Saptak music festival for an unparalleled experience.

Other Saptak Events

Apart from the annual festival, Saptak also organises a week long Saptak Sankalp Saptah Festival to showcase and promote emerging talents alongwith accomplished, senior Gurus. Shorter festivals to celebrate various seasons such as Vasant (spring) and Varsha (monsoon) are also organised by Saptak.
