After a string of sold out concerts, Aditya Gandhi is touring India with his guitar and unconventional ideas. The concert is uniquely styled to present a humorous side of classical music, a theme rarely explored in performance.
Does the idea of Beatles and Japanese music at the same time sound intriguing? Prelude and Leaps presents an unusual synthesis of musical style – to bring out a humorous and playful side of classical music. ‘Humour’ in music is a bit different from what we are used to. Rather than punch lines and laugh-out-loud comedy, musical humour plays with the expectations of the listeners.
Aditya leaps between various styles and origins, with music from Cuba, Scotland, Japan, France and Paraguay – presenting stories, dances, and some unusual expressions that one may not expect in music.
About the Artist
“We watched as his hands slid along the fret board, like ocean waves on a calm sunny day. The music was hauntingly beautiful, and the occasional thump on the guitar made Indian guitarist Aditya Gandhi’s performance, a thriller to watch”
-The Sunday Times
Aditya Gandhi is a graduate of Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (Bachelors of Music) and Chicago College of Performing Arts (Masters of Music) under world-renowned guitarist Denis Azabagic, and has performed across India, Sri Lanka, Scotland and United States. Most recently he has toured Sri Lanka as a part of GuitarFest 2017 performing 7 concerts in 6 cities, performed self-conceptualized ‘Nocturnal Concerts’ and ‘Iberian Nights’ in Ahmedabad, and multiple concerts in partnership with Alliance Francaise.
Aditya’s goal is to shake up the preconceived notions modern audiences have about 'art music’. He is a firm believer in the universality of music, and makes his concert as accessible and reflective of contemporary culture culture as possible.
