29th memorial concert, prithvi theatre annual concert,
Prithvi Theatre's intimate and acoustically wonderful space is also ideal for Classical music; both vocal and instrumental. As part of the 2nd Prithvi Festival in 1985; Ustad Zakir Hussain and Pandit Shivkumar Sharma performed to a spellbound audience on the 28th of February. The experience of hearing the Suntoor and Tabla up close; un-amplified; and in their acoustic purity was a rare and amazing experience; bringing alive the traditional 'baithak' experience.; Since 1985 Ustad Zakir Hussain has kept his 'date' with Prithvi Theatre - by personally designing magical evenings of musical encounters at Prithvi on 28th February every year.; Over the past 27 years these evenings have included an amazing line-up of musical legends; and young aspiring musicians; both national and international; from genres ranging from classical; fusion; jazz to folk music.
