Gateway of India to swing to Parveen Sultana


Always on the run, Mumbai loves to sleep in on a Sunday. But not this one. This has nothing to do with Valentine’s Day, but the coming together of two very special icons — the Gateway of India with the vast Arabian Sea lapping at its feet and the magical classical vocalist Begum Parveen Sultana, whose voice effortlessly spans the length and breadth of the four octaves.

This majestic voice from Patiala Gharana will be showcased at 6.30am on Sunday at a specially curated ‘Spiritual Morning’ concert by Pancham Nishad, reports DNA. The concert is being organised by Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation as a part of it ‘Make in India Week’ celebrations.

Ecstatic about the response which saw the concert sell out soon after being announced, Shashi Vyas, who heads Pancham Nishad, said, “India’s spiritual music holds sway all over the world. In this bustling metropolis, the common person, due to her/his hectic schedule and a stressful life, is always in search of inner peace. Nothing can do this as beautifully as spiritual music. The Spiritual Morning series of concerts began like this in 2002.”
