Women on Record

Conversations with Chai

26 Jul '17
 
 

Image: Gauhar Jan

Welcome to a world of incredible women, of a black and white era, of the salon, the tawaifs, stories, riddles, anecdotes, photographs and songs…the beginning of the world of entertainment in the gramophone era. ‘Women on Record' is a story of the Baijis in the early twentieth century. Most audiences are familiar with only a few names from this period, notably Gauhar Jan. This multi-media presentation, a mix of vocal music, folk music, thumri, geet and film songs, brings out stories of a diverse array of women performers, divas of their time, in music, theatre and film. Please join us and relax as Vidya Shah takes us back to the vivid world of the salon and the beginnings of the studio.

Conversations with Chai is a series of lectures initiated by the Tyeb Mehta Foundation. They promote innovative ideas and perspectives and initiate dialogue and exchange within and between various disciplines to enhance understanding of artistic traditions and contemporary art practices.
