Bangalore International Centre had arranged a Ghazal Programme titled “Rang aur Noor” by SmitaBellur and accompanists on Saturday, 18th May, 2013 at 6.00 PM at its auditorium.
It was a memorable performance. Smit was at her mellifluous best and presented some of the most memorable Ghazals penned by Ghalib, AllamaIqbal, Bahadur Shah Zafar, ShakeelBadayuni et al and immortalised by singers, like Begum Akhtar, Mehdi Hassan, RunaLaila and others. The manner in which she innovated with Ragaas by interweaving them with the songs was breathtaking. As the rain gently beat down outside the auditorium, th audience sat spell-bound inside. A memorable evening indeed!
