Part of Darbar FestivalFriday 28 September 2012
A rare chance to listen to the only female pakwaj (double sided drum) player, Chitrangana Agle-Reshwal, who performs a solo followed by a talk with the audience.
The keeper of the pakhawaj is Lord Ganesh, making the instrument one of the oldest percussion instruments in the world.
When Agle-Reshwal skillfully handles the pakhawaj she brings alive the powerful ancient percussion sound and makes it roar!
