BILLERICA, MA— Kalavaibhav will present a musical concert “Maitra Jeevanche” by Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar and Saleel Kulkarni on May 14 in Billerica, MA.
Maitra Jeevanche is a journey of friendship expressed by music and created by Mangeshkar and Kulkarni, and an unscripted and artistically blended amalgamation of words, melody and rhythm.
These eminent music composers of India will present to the audience their compositions and songs along with explanations on why particular intonations were chosen for the melodies. In particular, how the feelings associated with particular words in the lyrics are exemplified by the music will be demonstrated, organizers of the event say.
