Nishant Panicker captures the moods and colours of seasons through Ragas in music. The world of Hindustani classical music has been traditionally linked to the idea of seasons. Ancient Indian scriptures described six distinct seasons or ritus, each season evokes a different mood and feeling. In this performance, Nishant Panicker, a disciple of Vidushi Lalith J. Rao, doyenne of the Agra-Atrauli Gharana and Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee, will depict seasons through the lens of ragas and compositions.

Nishant was initiated into Hindustani classical music at the age of six. He received initial vocal lessons and early inspiration from the sarod maestro Padma Shri Rajeev Taranath, imbibing the art of raga elaboration and taan creation by the time he was ten. Lalithjii with her caring and astute guidance over the past ten years has groomed Nishant into a delightful performer in the Agra tradition. With many prestigious performances, awards and accolades, Nishant is among the youngest in the country to have received the acclaimed National Center for Performing Arts (NCPA) Hindustani Vocal Scholarship.
