A jugalbandhi concert refers to a performance by two lead artistes. In a typical jugalbandhi concert the two artistes take turns to present their individual pieces and then collaborate to present a piece together. Here are some examples of jugalbandhi concerts – vocal and instrumental.
Ravi Shankar (sitar) & Ali Akbar Khan (sarod)
Balamuralikrishna (carnatic vocal) & Kishori Amonkar (hindustani vocal)
Trichur Brothers (carnatic vocal) & Jayateerth Mevundi (hindustani vocal)
Jayanthi Kumaresh (veena) & Gaurav Mazumdar (sitar)
