Panchtatva, a unique show by Durga Jasraj’s Art And Artistes, India’s 1st Multi-Media Music Programming Company, has put together a program depicting the five chief elements of nature, “Aakash (Space), Vaayu (Wind), Agni (Fire), Jal (Water) and Prithvi (Earth)”. Panchatatva is an experience combining Animation and Visual Effects with Soundscapes and the use of Shlokas from ancient Vedas (scriptures). The second show of the ‘Panchatatva’ tour in Ahmedabad proved to be a massive success, attracting people from various walks of the city.
The show at Shreyas Amphitheater, Ahmedabad, had top Musical Superstars like Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, Ustad Rashid Khan, Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Rattan Mohan Sharma, Ankita Joshi, Taufiq Qureshi, Selva Ganesh, Sridhar Parthasarathy, Subhankar Banerjee performing together for the first time ever, with Durga Jasraj helming the concert. Durga Jasraj said,
Panchtatava is a musical extension of our dynamic Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji’s call for action for Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan. Both me as well as Neeraj (partner Neeraj Jaitly) firmly believe that each one of us can contribute in our unique way and hence we decided to roll out a Concert tour to spread awareness through entertainment, which will leave a lasting impression on people’s minds. We are honored that Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Government of India, Aditya Birla Group, and the United Nations (UNIC) have supported our endeavor.
Centrally located in Ahmedabad, the theater was packed with people who came to treat themselves to a whole new experience, by watching the Panchatatva performance. The city attracted a large crowd who were delighted and entranced by the music superstars who took the audience into a beautiful trance. Each and every member of the audience stood enthralled by the audio-visual treat that the magical performance offered. Panchatatva includes a 5-city tour which kicked off from Mumbai and was held in Ahmedabad on 26th December 2014. Followed by the success of the first two shows, the tour will move on to enchant three more major cities of India.
