Ghazal wali diary, By Muqtalif

Muqtalif (pronounced Mukhtalif), which means different, is formed by three very different people who have found a way to remember some musicians and songs that mustn’t gather dust on the www pages!

These are songs that are meant to celebrate the heartaches and the glorious mistakes that now can’t be unmade. Life in its entire package includes colours of gloom that are either kept inside old diaries or stacked above old furniture in the attic. It is their attempt to clean the dust off the old diary and feel the now yellowed pages and smell the air that once was new.. Ghazals as a genre has gathered over its extended journey, many different colours to play with for an artist. It holds within itself the power to be a mirror, not just for the artist rendering it but also the listeners. Muqtalif has found a way to fit the stories of today to songs of yesterday, aiming to draw some simple triangles in the current performance spaces that have far discovered Polygons and conic sections!   About the artists: Dheeraj Banerjea is a music producer and live musician based in Bangalore. He has been a full-time musician since 2019. His genres range from Folk, Indian Semi Classical, Acapella and Alt Rock. He plays the guitar for Muqtalif, lending his expertise in hindustani raags through his instrument.   Shreyash Vishwaroop is a tabla player and multi percussionist. He learnt the tabla under the tutelage of Pt. Kiran Deshpande of Farrukhabad gharana and Shri Jagdeep Kiran Bawra of Delhi gharana. He is also the composer of some of the original ghazals that will be performed during the show.   Aparupa Gupta is Bangalore based singer, formally trained in Hindustani Classical. She has been actively performing Ghazals for a little over a year with as many as 25 shows as the singer of Muqtalif. Her many projects involve experimenting with genres and styles, seeking the many purposes of art in a multiplex society. Rishabh Chauhan was introduced to music, particularly ghazals and semi-classical melodies, at a young age by his father. Growing up surrounded by spiritual and cultural influences, he embraced this genre deeply. With formal training in Indian classical vocals and experience accompanying renowned artists, he felt a personal calling to explore music associated with inner peace and joy.
