REVIEW -Naad Mudra - Uday Nanivadekar


  • Uday Naniwadekar | Pune

▪️ Founded in April 2018, Naadmudra is a registered, partnership organization, dedicated to music.

▪️ Prime Objectives
Naadmudra believes in the “less is more” policy. It is a platform for artists, musicians, singers, instrumentalists, and music lovers who might have time constraints, but believe in engaging with quality music, staying in touch, and creatively involving themselves with like-minded fellow artists and music lovers during the limited time that they can imagine spending with us.
– Naadmudra does not function on the lines of an orchestra. It is a holistic experience of indulging in different genres of music, cultivating and nurturing a delectable musical taste, and experimenting with innovative formats of artistic presentation. With that being mentioned, a performance, thus, breaks the conventional and conservative norms and boundaries of an orchestra, thereby becoming an intimate musical experience of a musical concert of high quality.

▪️ Furthermore, Naadmudra aims at presenting compositions, especially from the “Golden Era” which might be antiquated, unconventional, or memoirs of the bygone, but of an eminent class. The curation/moderation complements the musical presentations, as the unwoven stories behind the makings of these masterpieces unravel through the fluent moderation. This is an additional info-take-away for the audiences.
– The performances are generally a colorful combination of genres, styles, formats, and musical backgrounds like classical, semi-classical, Marathi and Hindi film music, ghazals, romantic, devotional, theatre, and folk music.

▪️ Naadmudra strives to offer a wide and diverse range of musical experiences, thereby taking into consideration the likes and tastes of its audiences which is pivotal in fulfilling its objectives.
– Offering theme-based programs from the Golden Era (composers, singers, music arrangers, musicians, etc.) is another focal objective.

Burman, etc.
– Many small-scale intimate gatherings, performances on auspicious occasions like Ganeshotsav, Diwali Pahat, Kojagiri, etc. helped Naadmudra carve its own niche and leave an unforgettable impression on the minds of the audiences.
