KNMA Celebrates International Museum Day 2022 with a musical evening, ‘Dhrupad at the Museum’

New Delhi, 13th, May: The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art will celebrate International Museum Day 2022 with a musical evening entitled, ‘Dhrupad at the Museum’ with Dhrupad vocalist Pelva Naik accompanied by Pt. Sanjay Agle on Pakhawaj.

The event will be held at KNMA Saket and is open to all (free entry). Refreshments will be served following the concert. Pelva Naik has been trained in the Dhrupad style of vocal music under the eminent Dagar School of Indian classical Music. She is a disciple of legendary Dhrupad maestro Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar. She has also received guidance from Rudraveena maestro Ustad Mohi Bahauddin Dagar. In her music, Pelva endeavors to adhere to traditional elements which are complete in themselves. At the same time, she strives to cultivate fresh characteristics that are personal and distinct. As a solo Dhrupad vocalist, she believes, that even performance of this unique art form is a central aspect of her ‘being’ as an artist; teaching and edification of Dhrupad must remain the most integral element for a practitioner. Teaching and sharing the nuances of the art of Dhrupad is an integral part of her life and practice. Pelva teaches and performs Dhrupad in India and overseas

The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art

Established by art collector Kiran Nadar in 2010, the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) is the first privately-funded museum of art exhibiting modern and contemporary works from India and the sub-continent. Located in New Delhi NCR, India’s capital city, KNMA hosts an ever-growing collection of artworks that both highlights a magnificent generation of 20th-century Indian painters from the post- Independence decades and engages with the different art practices of younger contemporaries.

Sponsored by the Shiv Nadar Foundation, KNMA is focused on bridging the gap between art and the public and fostering a museum-going culture in India. KNMA aims to become a place for confluence, dialogue and collaboration through its curatorial initiatives and exhibitions, school and college workshops, art appreciation discourses, symposiums, and public programs.
