Dear Wikimedians,

We are glad to invite you to join us for an event in Mumbai on October 7th where Pandita. Neela Bhagwat [1] will donate her comprehensive textual compilation of  Gwalior Gharana [2] bandishes.

Timing: 5.30 to 7 pm
Venue: Shivaji Park Nagarik Sangh, (hall next to Shivaji statue at Shivaji Park, Dadar)

As some of you may know that Gwalior Gharana is one of the old traditions of Hindustani gayaki and like other gayaki's the tradition has been passed on orally in the guru-shishya parampara. Pt. Neela Bhagwat has over a period of 30 years (of learning and teaching music) meticulously compiled most of the Gwalior Gharana bandishes with notations and notes. Upon the request of CIS-A2K, she has agreed to donate this comprehensive collection which will be scanned and hosted on Wikisource. We hope that this will be of interest to music aficionados and those interested in the study of Hindustani Music.

CIS-A2K is thankful to the event hosts, Khayal Trust. The event will attract a community of Hindustani music lovers and we hope to orient them to consider improving the quality of content on Hindustani music and musicians on Wikipedia during the event. We welcome the community members in Mumbai to join us in this effort. Please help spread the word.
