Kailas Sangeet Trust
Raag Improv & Taal Workshop
A good portion of the fees collected from these online workshops will go towards supporting the artists, whose sources of earnings have been impacted and stopped due to novel Covid-19 and the lockdown. Together, we can help each other esp, when it is likely that live shows, music performances at public places, mass gathering etc., will not be allowed any time soon.
As we all know – an Indian classical music performance is greatly marked by two key elements – Raga and Taal! We are happy to announce and invite you all to be a part of:
- RAGA IMPROV: with Sitar maestro Anupama Bhagwat, and,
- TAAL WORKSHOP: with Tabla virtuoso Sh. Rahul Pophali.

Aarambh (April 20th, 2019)
Kailas Sangeet Trust presented the inaugural concert of the year, Aarambh, on April 20th, 2019.
About the Trust
Kailas Sangeet Trust (non-profit) was started in January 2019 to carry forward our musical heritage in emerging cosmopolitan hubs. The foundation seeks to bring leading exponents of Indian classical music to Whitefield – with a vision to be a significant contributor to promotion of Indian Classical and Semi Classical Music and Socio-Cultural development in society at large.
Kailas Sangeet Trust is an initiative of Vid. Anupama Bhagwat, a professional sitar artiste (www.anupamabhagwat.com), and Mr. Subranil Gangabasi, serial entrepreneur and management expert (http://linkmindsolutions.com).
Vid. Anupama Bhagwat is a globally acclaimed sitarist of the Imdadkhani gharana, and as a disciple of the legendary Acharya Pandit Bimalendu Mukherjee (1925-2010), is taking forward his rich and inspiring legacy through her numerous celebrated performances across the world.
Kailas Sangeet is based on the firm belief that classical music and the arts inculcate a sensitive approach to life, and promote compassion which can enhance social consciousness towards larger issues. Our mission is to contribute to Socio-cultural development by organizing mega concerts with Global and Local artists, conducting music workshop, teaching and mentoring.
Our inaugural event (‘Aarambh’) in April 2019 was an auspicious start – featuring Vid. Shubha Mudgal with Pandit Aneesh Pradhan, and Vid. Anupama Bhagwat accompanied by Shri Rahul Pophali – and was also in aid of pediatric heart surgeries, in partnership with Rotary Whitefield Chapter and FORUM Shantiniketan.
‘Aarambh’ was the first concert in an annual series which begins every year with a flagship event ‘Eulogium’ in honor of Acharya, Late Pandit Bimalendu Mukherjee, a Renaissance man and multi-faceted maestro who made great contributions in music and several other fields.
Going forward, we want to provide a larger platform to promote upcoming talent who need support and patronage as torchbearers of our culture and heritage – thus enabling them to gain larger exposure by interacting with globally acclaimed artistes across cultural genres. The upcoming ‘Eulogium’, featuring Ustad Zakir Hussain with Vid. Jayanthi and Vidwan Kumaresh, and Pandit Budhaditya Mukherjee with Soumen Nandy, is a marqee event in this vein.
The success of Aarambh and Eulogium, inspires us to look at the socio-cultural vista in the long term and to support the diverse artist community in their endeavor.
We welcome you to join our endeavor of connecting music, life and social causes, and to enrich the experiences and outlook of the next generation.
