If you can’t get enough of the music of Daler Mehndi, you’ll be extremely interested to know of his new venture. The Indian Pop Singer and Bhangra King, is all set to introduce to the world and his fans, a classical music instrument called “Swarmandir” that is created and conceived by him.
The fact that Mr. Mehndi could develop and invent a new instrument proves, yet again, how much of a musical prodigy he is!
If you live in India, you’ll be able to catch the launch of this new instrument live with Mr. Mehndi at 6:30 pm on the 10th of February 2012 at Kamani Auditorium. The event will be inaugurated by Bharat Ratan Shri Ravi Shankar ji who will also launch the E-sitar followed by the performance of Mr. Daler Mehndi, Ustad Sahid Parvez Khan and a sitar recitation by Rishab Sharma.
“Swarmandir,” is a classical music instrument that is a combination of Rabab, Tanpura, and Swar Mandal, conceived and designed by Daler Mehndi. It has been crafted by the veteran luthiers Sanjay Rikhi Ram who has taken forth this legacy from his grandfather, the late Pt. Rikhi Ram. Rikhi Ram and Sons celebrate 83 years of Master Luthiers at the event titled “ Vadya Jhankar”. The name itself – Swarmandir – is also in honor of the Punjabi Gurudwara, the Golden Temple (also known as “Swarn Mandir”).
