Bollywood’s hottest music director has a surprise in store as he explores folk music from
around the country, shows how he weaves it into film songs and jams with folk musicians in an
incredibly high voltage set. Be prepared for an amalgam of folk from across the country fusion
and Bollywood!
Shujaat Khan & Malini Awasthi
Grammy nominated sitar maestro and vocalist Shujaat Khan and much loved folk singer Malini
Awasthi come together for the first time, with an especially put together band for Paddy
Fields, presenting the beautiful music and poetry from the region of Awadh. A set that
perfectly illustrates the theme of this year’s Paddy Fields.
Rahul Sharma & Gulzar Ganie
Pandit Shuvkumar Sharma was responsible for making the santoor a popular lead instrument
in classical music and his son, Rahul has now taken it into the mainstream with his several
fusion projects. For Paddy Fields he combines with noted Kashmiri folk singer Gulzar Ganie to
introduce a side to music from the valley hitherto never performed on a commercial stage in
Mumbai.
Deepa Nair Rasiya
For her first ever performance in India, award winning Sufi vocalist, London based Deepa Nair
Rasiya presents the wisdom of mystic poetry down the ages in her own unique style. In
different genres of music, from light classical to simple folk tunes, making her performance a
jugakbandi in itself!

Shantanu Moitra
He may be better known for his music in Bollywood films but Shanatanu Moitra is an intrepid
trekker and spends a lot of time in the mountains. So it’s natural that he woiuld pick up
sounds and songs from the hill regions and create some amazing songs that represent the
mountains of India. It’s a unique set, performed by the extremely talented vocalist Kaushiki
Chakraborty, Tibetan monk Ani Choying and classical sitar player Purbayan Chatterjee. If you

across Europe. Strangely, they have never performed at a commercial event in India! Another
first coming to you from Paddy Fields.
Viva La Goa 
Another coming together of musicians to create something special for Paddy Fields! Sunday
night ends on a vibrant, colourful note as some of Mumbai’s finest musicians bring out the
musical spirit of Goa. Audiences will hear some evergreen Konkani and Portuguese classics along
