Jugalbandi, a term that translates as “entwined twins,” describes a musical dialog between two solo performers. India’s two great classical music systems, the Carnatic and Hindustani, are showcased by two legendary Indian musicians, Sikkil Gurucharan and Shujaat Khan, respectively. Exploring melodic modes (raga), lyric (sahitya), and rhythm (tala), through collaboration and improvisation, the artists reveal both what is distinctive and complementary in Carnatic and Hindustani music.
