Annual Festival Shab-E-Mehfil Organized; An Initiative of Aarohi Arts Association



Shab-E-Mehfil is the annual festival organized by Aarohi Arts Association. Aarohi Arts Association is a non- profit, non- government organization for performing arts with a mission to celebrate and share Indian cultural traditions and heritage.

The musical was graced by the august presence of noted musicians from the city like Deb Sankar (Violin Brothers), Jyoti Goho, Alla Rakha Kalawant, Arshadali Ali Khan and so on.

Conceived and directed by Koyel Dasgupta Naha – who is one of the brightest voice of the current generation of Indian Classical and Semi Classical vocalists, Shab-E-Mehfil was a tribute to the glorious history of Awadh – its music, dance, style, literature and culinary heritage.

It was a homage to the golden era when Thumri and Kathak, as sister art forms, were embracing earthly love.


Legendary songs like Bedardi Se Preet Lagayi, Saiyan Rooth Gaye, Mere Ham Nafaz, Teri Katili Nigahan Ne Mara, Hamari Atariya Pe Aja Re Sawariya, Sawariya Nazariya Kahen Mare were presented keeping the essence of Awadh. Dance was presented by Priyanka Saha Ghosh, while musicians like Sandip Ghosh (Tabla), Debashish Adhikari (Harmonium), Debashish Halder (Sarengi) accompanied them. It was well narrated by Somadutta Bhattacharya.
