HCL Maestros in Studio, Live @ The Peninsula Studios is an audiovisual presentation of Indian Classical Music showcasing both the Hindustani and Carnatic traditions.
We present the finest young artists of today, performing exquisite pieces, recorded and filmed Live @ The Peninsula Studios.
Our vision is to popularize good music and build a rich catalogue of Hindustani and Carnatic Classical music in the audio and AV format. Our mission is to capture the talent of various artists from diverse gharanas spanning the geography of this country.
This program celebrates artists who are supremely talented and very well known in their respective geographies and will be maestros in the coming years.
