Bani Basu



Gandharvi: Life of a Musician tells the story of Apala, a gifted singer of Hindustani classical music, whose extraordinary gift gets buried under various familial expectations, demands and repressions. Surrounding Apala’s story are the interlinked lives of other practitioners of music and classical art, whose lives intersect with Apala’s in ways that profoundly affect all of them. Written in lilting prose that draws on the idioms of Hindustani classical music, Gandharvi, a modern Bengali classic, is also a celebration of the indomitable spirit of music.
