Richa Sharma Plays Rain n Raga
Richa Sharma recently performed at Mumbai’s Nehru Planetarium for the annual Rain n Raga concert. Rashid Khan, Parvana, Taufeeq Qureshi, Satyajeet Talwalkar and Rakesh Chaurasia also performed at the show. The concert followed a jugal-bandhi format, depicting different moods of the monsoon season, and showcased different genres and styles of classical Indian music as well as thumri, Sufi, folk and regional music.
“I am highly honored to share the stage with renowned artiste like these,” said Richa Sharma. “My performance involved Sufi flavor emoting shades of mood sadness, happiness to romance. It was one kind of a classical evening which was created with Rashid Ali Khan Saab which will go down in my memory lane forever.”
Sharma is working on an unplugged album, which she says is her dream project.
“This has been my dream,” Sharma said. “I have always wanted to record like they used to earlier, without the help of digital re-mixing and editing.”
