brahma_naad_sitar_248New Delhi: Kirtik is just six years old but when he plays the sitar he’s nothing less than a maestro.

 

It’s his innate talent in music that has earned him a spot among 1200 sitar players from around the world, who would be performing at a grand ceremony in Delhi on Friday.

 

Brahma Naad organised by the Art of Living Foundation will attempt to raise funds for rehabilitation work in flood-hit parts of Bihar.

 

“I am very glad to be in the presence of such a huge gathering of musicians,” Kirtik says.

 

Joining Kirtik on stage will be seven musicians who are visually challenged. They say they are honoured to be part of an event on such a scale.

 

“There have been many musical symphonies with other musical instruments. But this is the first time that sitar has been given so much importance,” says Bhimsen Maharana, another musician who would be taking part in the grand event.

 

The show organisers are expecting a turnout of more than four lakh people at the two-day-long event, which will also be telecast live to a worldwide audience of more than 300 million.

 

The historic musical symphony has also got Guinness Book of World Recordsteam taking an interest.
