Rhythm and Rhyme will be an evening of poetry readings held at Amber Fort, Jaipur on Friday, 20th January at 7.30 PM.

The exclusively curated evenings offer an experience that uniquely places cultural performances within the context of the city’s built heritage and allows audiences to engage with these significant places in a new dimension.”

Poetry readings featuring renowned voices from two sides of the globe.

Padma Vibhushan Ustad Amjad Ali Khan
“One of the 20th century’s greatest masters of the sarod…”  Songlines World Music Magazine
Ustad Amjad Ali Khan has given the sarod a new and yet timeless interpretation. He is one of the few maestros who considers his audience to be the soul of his motivation. As he once said, "There is no essential difference between classical and popular music. Music is music. I want to communicate with the listener who finds Indian classical music remote."

It is this love and belief for music that has enabled him to challenge traditional notions of music through innovation while retaining its integrity.

Mujre Se Multiplex Tak
Music, Poetry and Gupshup
Vidya Shah with Luke Kenny
How often do we hear, “Wo zamana kuchh aur tha (Ah, that was a different time),” particularly in the world of music, dance, film and everything in the magical realm of entertainment? Countless times! What made that time so different? And why does it keep changing?
Once upon a time, you had only men going to the Mujra at the invitation of the elite while women from ‘respectable’ families were supposed to stay at home or at best, watch in ‘purdah’. But today, men and women are free to enjoy a raunchy item number together in a multiplex.

Singer Vidya Shah reflects on these changes through song while actor Luke Kenny punctuates them with poignant poetry and quirky banter.
