Featuring the melodious Rucha Muley Jambhekar!
… my confidence to pursue music as a full-time professional can be solely attributed to my Guru and role model Vidushi Arati Ankalikar Tikekar. She has exposed me to new dimensions of music and has given wings to my thoughts and creative process.
Read below about Rucha’s favorite Fellowship productions and why she enjoyed working on them.
“In this piece, I loved the way I could seamlessly blend two very different ‘Rasas’ and temperamental Ragas together. The understanding and command over the Ragas (Rageshree, Malkauns) and ‘Laykaari’ helped us reach the level of effortlessness that is evident in the final output. This was my first collaboration with very talented musicians from different genres and I thoroughly enjoyed this give and take of creative ideas.”
“This performance is a tribute to my Guru, Vidushi Arati Ankalikar Tikekar. This was a project conceived, created, and delivered without any rehearsals and it truly is a great reflection of the brilliant talent and professionalism of everyone involved!”
“This was a great project; we had a blast working on this. It gave me a chance to showcase my versatility as a singer. Since the toggle between the Lavani and the Bandish was instantaneous, it required the singers to have an in-depth understanding of the distinctly different Gayaki’ styles in order to portray the emotions that this piece demanded.”
