An NCPA Presentation
This thematic presentation has been designed to enable uninitiated listeners to enjoy and appreciate the rich raga legacy of Hindustani music by associating a particular raga with a corresponding raga-based film song. The song selection is based on nazms and ghazals immortalised by the legendary playback singer, Mohammed Rafi (1924-1980), whose versatile voice and expressions brought life into sensational lyrics and outstanding music compositions of the golden era. Shrikant Narayan pursued his passion forsaking a career in pharmaceutical company, and today, has established himself as the golden voice of Rafi. Known for his record-breaking Marathi rendition, ‘Dol doltay warya wari’, he has sung in a number of languages including Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
