HYDERABAD: A fusion in music is difficult to pull off especially when it is a collaboration of contemporary and classical music.
The music in the “Keys to India” concert has been conceptualised by Anil Srinivasan, Chennai-based classical-contemporary pianist and Sharik Hasan, New York-based Jazz pianist.
The concert is being organised by Hyderabad Western Music Foundation, in collaboration with Aalaap, The Hyderabad Public School and Musee Musical.
Inspired by their respective religions, the concert is a creation of the two artistes aptly titled Keys to India. A coming together of two pianos and pianists of international repute for the first time, Keys to India will be a spontaneous sharing and interaction of two creative minds. Crafted anew to respect the sensibilities of the piano, this collaboration will showcase Indian music at its best, and is, in a sense, representative of fierce nationalistic pride and the notion of equality and brotherhood. The Keys to India wil take place at The Hyderabad public school at 7: 30 pm.
