Aye Re Chandni – Ronkini Gupta Collective

RGC2

Leader of the pack, Ronkini Gupta, is a Sangeet Visharad from the Gandharva Mahavidyalaya in Mumbai. The Collective that she fronts is an extension of her experimental and creative side where she blends her learning of Hindustani Classical with contemporary musical sounds. On this venture, Ronkini works with Arohi Mhatre and Anup Satam on vocals, Darpan Suthar on guitars, Nitish Ranadive on percussion, Suraaj Parab on bass, and  Adinath Patkar on piano. On “Aye Re Chandni”, the ladies showcase their respective vocal talents both independently and together on a composition from Ronkini that picks up pace as percussion and the sounds of guitar join this mid-tempo track. While their arrangements noticeably show a more developed instrumental edge, there is no denying the Collective’s sincerity in pursuing their world musical passion with a melody woven in Raag Bhimpalasi and intertwined with sargams sung in harmony.
