The second day was kickstarted by Ustaad Bahauddin Dagar’s rudra veena performance, followed by a sarod recital by Tejendra Majumdar. Then, Hindustani vocalist Ashwini Bhide Deshpande gave a masterful vocal performance. The grand event of the evening was a performance by noted vocalist Sajan Mishra, which won applause from the audience.

Shehnai players Sanjeev and Ashwani Shankar said, “Performing in our own country is a different experience. Here, you get the listeners’ appreciation as you play. Overseas, the audience waits for the program to get over and then they applaud.”
