The whitefield music festival was an amazing experience – kudos to the organising team. Can’t imagine the huge effort and coordination ??????????Beautiful stage and elegant set up, excellent planning and arrangements and such a treat to hear the jugalbandi by so many artists. So special for the local community to have this right in their midst and it was great to see so many kids enjoying the performances. Way to go — please keep them coming.

Thank you for enthralling us with your music, we were indeed blessed to be a part of it. Wishing success to Ananda Dhwani and your continuous efforts to take music to greater heights. It feels good to see hindustani classical music in safe and able hands as you pass it on to the next generation ???


  1. Congratulations, on your new venture, thanking you to create a platform for us music lovers. This a very innovative and creative platform to get all the information under one roof. Carry on my friend.

    1. Thank you !!!

  2. I love music — creating it specifically!! and I wanna be a part of Ananda Dhwani ?? I was speaking with Mysore Manjunath Sir the other day and he actually told me about Anand Dhwani and told to come and see once… and now I know… those two days were simply unforgettable…. very inspiring 🙂

  3. Ananda dhwani is growing both in infrastructure and performance level. way back to 2011, first time I experienced Ananda dhwani music festival…. was a great musical spark…… Till then, I have been a part of ananda dhwani either passively or actively.

    This event is an amalgamation of varied music genres in a multi-cultuerd metro city where the audience can find their own music cultures or taste.

    An appropriate platform for the music lovers, performers, practitioners and a bold step towards keeping the intact of Indian Classical Music.

    In fact, ananda dhwani is doing a great job of creating a qualitative music audience which is a need of hours for Indian Classical Music.

    I get inspired from this kind of endeavor by Prabir Sir who is carrying forward the music mission as a gratitude to his Guru….
    congratulations……ananda dhwani team……look forward for forthcoming events.

    1. Thank you !!!

  4. I stay in JP Nagar 4th phase,on bannerghatta road. Whitefield is quite a distance and I attended this concert for the first time, But after attending I felt, I would have missed an experience of lifetime, had I not attended the concert.It was such a pleasure to listen to the concert. I attended on 18th and after the concert I was feeling why did I not attend on 17th as well. It was very well organized, the stage decoration was very tastefully done creating an ambiance just suited for the concert. The Jasrangis of Sitar and Veena a jugalbandi between Hindusthani and Carnatic of different ragas played on different Taalas was such a synthesis it was just mesmerizing. Later Ashwiniji and Pt. Abhaynakar on vocal again on Jasrangi singing two different ragas in perfect harmony was simply superb, Wish this concert continues year after year.

    1. Thank you !!!

  5. Loved the recently conducted two day Whitefield Music Festival. So many accomplished artists under one roof! Amazing music in a beautiful and peaceful setting. It was an outstanding experience. Thanks for bringing world class artists to Whitefield!

  6. Really enjoyed the music festival
