Unique Instrumental Concert First time at Wellington
NZIFS proudly brings “Nadaswaram Concert - by Kasim Brothers” to the Wellington audience on 6th February 2015 @ St.Orans College, 550, High Street, Lower Hutt, Wellington.
Nadaswaram, is considered as an auspicious classical musical instrument without which any South Indian Hindu Weddings are incomplete. It’s the world's loudest non-brass acoustic wind instrument with a hardwood body and a large flaring bell made of wood or metal. It is known as “Mangala(Auspicious) Vadya (Instrument) “a key instrument played in weddings and temples of the South Indian tradition. This instrument is usually played in pairs, and accompanied by a pair of drums called thavil.
We are sure that this unique instrumental concert would bring entirely new essence of music to our members, as the artistes “ Kasim Brothers, Shri.S.Kasim& Shri. S.Babu” hail from the family of musicians who has preserved the art of playing Nadaswaram for the past 300 years. They are disciples and grandsons of Late. Dr.Sheik Chinna Moulana who is a legend in Nadaswaram. Kasim Brothers are accompanied by Sri.VijayaKumar Mathavan & Sri.Rajan Ganesan on Thavil.
