Jalsaghar Concert Series in New York City
Indian classical music was traditionally
performed in an intimate atmosphere. Patrons opened
their Havelis (mansions) to great masters of music
as performing venues. They invited friends, music-lovers
and connoisseurs to these Baithaks (sittings)
to share a profound aesthetic experience in a
relaxed and refined atmosphere.
We now seek to recreate the Jalsaghar
(music room) for the 21st century audience. In
contrast to the large concert hall with amplified
sound (a relatively recent phenomenon), the Jalsaghar
will offer a more intimate setting in which the
proximity between the artist and audience allows
for a deeper experience of the beauty in music.
Help us keep this rich tradition alive. Be a host
to a Jalsaghar Evening.
