Revival of baithak with Kavita Seth
In the baithak revival series, Haroof, Iktara (Wake Up Sid) singer Kavita Seth will give vocals to the writings of mystic sufi poets like Khusrau, Kabir and Syed Zia Alvi who wrote soul-stirring verses to speak about their quest for the divine. Known for being an aficionado of the genre of Sufi, Kavita has collaborated with Alleyah Asghar who penned down the idea to revive the baithak through Haroof, which aims to propel and promote Hindustani gayaki forms amongst audiences.
The performing arts and music form is known for stalwarts such as Ustad Zakir Hussain as well as vocalists like Kaushik Chakrobarty and Ashwini Bhide. The series aims to bring younger musicians from the tradition into the public domain.
