President Kalam on the drums!
November 14, 2006
President A P J Abdul Kalam plays the drums with noted percussionist Anandan Sivamani at the Rashtrapati Bhavan's Mughal Gardens on November 13.
Earlier, the President felicitated the artistes of the fusion music group Shraddha, who performed in the Mughal Gardens as part of the Indradhanush programme organised by the Rashtrapati Bhavan Cultural Club. Shraddha is formed by musicials Shankar Mahadevan, Mandolin U Srinivas, Sivamani and Loy Mendonsa.
President Kalam had started the Indradhanush series of concerts at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in December 2002, to highlight India's rich cultural heritage, with Pandit Jasraj kicking off the series of concerts.
