This tribute will feature an exceptionally unique concept ‘Samyuktam- We are United’ – bringing for the first time two dancing divas together with an amalgamation of Bharatanatyam by Rukmini Vijayakumar and Kathak by Vidha Lal.

 The event in honour of the unsung heroes will witness some soulful music by many talented musicians from India. The young maestro prince of tabla Pranshu Chatur Lal will present his illuminating rhythm on the queen of drums who will also present a small excerpt in jugalbandi with renowned mridangam maestro Harsha Samaga. It will also feature vocals by Pavithra Chari & Rohith Bhat Uppoor filled with the musical note of flute by Atul Shankar, sarangi by Mudassir Khan and violin by G Raghavendra Prasath. There will also be a Nattuvangam recital that is performed by TS Sharath. The musical event will culminate in a unique Jugalbandi performed by Kathak exponent Smt. Vidha Lal and Bharatanatyam exponent Rukmini Vijayakumar.

 The event’s Main Sponsor is ONGC and is co-sponsored by Power Finance Corporation, NTPC, GAIL & Indian Oil and supported by Zorba the Buddha. Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi Airport is the Hospitality Partner and IndianRaga is associated as the Digital Partner.


 Talking about the upcoming Amar Jyoti edition,  Shruti ChaturLal, granddaughter of the Tabla legend and the Artistic Director at Pandit Chaturlal Festival said, “Under the aegis of Pandit Chatur Lal Festival, we have been successfully organizing the Amar Jyoti editions. It has been quite challenging to put this concert together since the artists were travelling from Bangalore after the second wave of covid. In Fact, even without the audience, this is a grand musical tribute to the martyrs of India – the unsung, unknown soldiers who have laid their lives for our freedom. We started this series in 1990 as a small effort from our side to honour and extend our gratitude to the martyrs of our nation and this year it marks its commencement of 24th edition. I would also like to thank all our sponsors and associates for coming together for this event especially in these unprecedented times.” Pranshu Chatur Lal, who is also the conceptualizer with his elder sister Shruti further shares, “The production Samyuktam – We Are United’ is specially designed to motivate us through these difficult times and assist us in strengthening our unity. With our ‘Jugalbandi’, you’ll be able to experience a blend of two Indian classical dance forms Kathak and Bharatanatyam uniquely but also the nuances of Hindustani & Carnatic rhythms and music traditions combining the grace & power of dance will for sure be considered to be magical to the eye,”
