Luxury trade magazine, Blackbook, has covered the opening of our music gallery – ‘Symphony of Mewar’ as well as the photo exhibition ‘Long Exposure’ in its June edition. It is indeed a pleasure to become a placeholder in this luxury bible. At the same time, we’re delighted to have found a sought after platform to enlighten readers of greater capacities with the arts of a golden era.
Remarking upon the idea behind the music gallery, Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur said, “The foundation of this Music Gallery at City Palace is connected towards preserving Mewar’s living heritage.” The royal family of Mewar has always appreciated and patronised classical music. It was in Mewar that a new genre of temple music known as ‘haveli sangeet’ found its way into the court, setting foundations for Dhrupad and Dhamaar Gayaki. Elaborating on the photography exhibit, he adds, “This photographic exhibition is a veritable sea of stories and every frame tells a different one. While the stories and anecdotes are part of the family history, they are at the same time biographies of historical figures that were instrumental in bringing about paradigm shifts in the history of our country.”
