Morning musical concerts

‘Morning concerts’, a new concept, is the brainchild of art connoisseur Akhilesh Washikar, and Tabla guru Gajendra Shewanker, the duo who are behind Style Tatva.

The duo has organised 18 free morning concerts, to date, in public parks, including the Melkote Park at Narayanguda, Botanical Garden at Kondapur, Indira Park, etc.

Morning musical concert in a public park is a unique concept offered to walkers to enjoy live music without a stage to face while walking. Music lovers either sit on the grass or walk and enjoy themselves. The concept for the first time has been extended to Hussain Sagar Lake.
