In a special tribute to legendary music composer R.D. Burman, the musicians who were part of the maestro's ensemble will engage the public here next month, in a demonstration of the musical instruments used in Burman's songs.

The show will be held in Kala Mandir auditorium here April 18.

Christened 'Vintage Pancham' (after Burman's nickname) the gala musical evening will see percussionist Homi Mullan and the multifaceted Buji Lord (acoustic drums, xylophone, ghungroo) explain the reasons behind using specific combinations of instruments for a particular song.

Buji Lord played on the soundtracks of "Yaadon Ki Baaraat", "Jawani Diwani" and "Hare Rama Hare Krishna".

"It will be different from other shows as enthusiasts will get to learn from the associated musicians about the logic of using such instruments," an official of the organisers Euphony - The R.D. Burman Foundation, told IANS.

Jayantilal (guitar, mandolin, banjo, rabaab), Vijay Indulkar (side percussions), Indranath Mukherjee (tabla) are also among the participants.
