Transplanting the Hindustani Classical Music Tradition

As the local South Asian community expanded and Indian music became better known in Edmonton, Mrs Paranjape did her part to present Hindustani music at formal and informal gatherings. Her performances, prized for their classical purity and mastery of raga and improvisation, were sometimes featured on the Image India broadcast on Shaw Cable. In one of these performances, she led an innovative ensemble piece featuring Raga Kafi on both North and South Indian instruments: sitar, tabla, sarangi, veena, mridangam and violin.
