Re­vival of baithak with Kavita Seth

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
