“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.
