Transplanting the Hindustani Classical Music Tradition

In 2006 Mrs. Paranjape and her husband moved to Guelph, Ontario, to live with their children. During her forty-five years in Edmonton, Mrs. Paranjape was an important ambassador for the study of North Indian classical music. She kept her music alive and shared it with others, using the richness of the tradition to give it foundation and meaning in a new context. Dr. Qureshi paid tribute to Wasanti Paranjape's contribution to music in Edmonton, saying, "She is a truly excellent musician and a truly wonderful person. Without any doubt she was a great asset to Edmonton society, and we are grateful for her rich and lasting contribution toward making Indian music everybody's music."
