He will be accompanied by Ajoy Chakrabarty [photo below] who will showcase some of Tagore’s compositions: Dhrupads, Khayal songs, Thumrīs, Geet and songs based on Western tunes.
With an astounding control over voice and his command over diverse genres such as Khayal, Thumri and Rabindra Sangeet, Ajoy Chakrabarty is one of the most acclaimed vocalists today and the ideal person to join Gulzar on his journey through the works of Rabindranath Tagore.
