Tumbhi Artists Go-Live at Prithvi Theatre, Mumbai!

Theatre is a world of souls where every artist lives a different character every day, every time!

Yatri Festival was nothing less than a glorious glimpse of this magical world. With jam-packed theatre for its shows, celebrating 500th birthday of one of its play, an aura-of-art around and people passionate about various arts, Prithvi Theatre was beaming with life where two of the Tumbhi artists were given a center stage to showcase their talent.

Bharat Tiwari, a poet from Delhi and Niraj Kumar Singh, folk singer from Banaras got an opportunity from Tumbhi to present their talent to the audiences of Prithvi Theatres, Mumbai and the artists made the most of that.

Niraj K Singh performed 4 folk songs and the entire crowd was not Mumbaiya anymore. Everybody was captivated by the colors of “Kaashi” (Varanasi) and the air it brought along. The passerbys were compelled to pause, stand and henceforth give a huge round of applause.

Tumbhi thought it was the magic of the “Music” but only to prove it wrong performed the other artist, Bharat Tiwari, who recited his four poems in front of the crowd. TV artists, film celebrities, theatre people, the café staff, everybody sat among the audience to soothe their ears. And needless to mention, they had a real good time!

We wish many more artists to continue getting identified by Tumbhi, go live and thus Rock!

It seems that artists are really enjoying the Passionate World of Arts created by Tumbhi!

Tumbhi: Bridge Between the Artists and Stage

Yatri, a well known theatre group is celebrating its 33rd anniversary this year. Yatri was founded by Om Katare in a phase when it was a real down-time for Hindi theatre in India. The initial years were a struggle with no funds or sponsors, but Yatri went on from directing its first play in 1979 and taking the group miles ahead before Hindi theatre could lose its meaning. Later, Yatri was lucky to get support from Late Jennifer Kapoor and that’s what brings them to perform at Prithvi Theatre , Mumbai.

Om Katare, the founder of Yatri, was in search of two artists to perform Live at Prithvi Theatre during Yatri festival. Based on the requirements, Tumbhi handpicked few from the ones registered on tumbhi.com. Out of that, two artists namely Bharat Tiwari (the poet) and Niraj Kumar Singh (the musician), grabbed the attention of Om Katare and now they are performing on January 26th and 27th at Prithvi!

Pashupatinath Mishra who gladly accepted him as his shagird. He then started taking formal lessons in music and singing. He is an eminent singer and has been performing live through stage shows etc – especially in Northern India. However, Niraj wanted to expand his horizons and wanted to get in front of more diverse audience and he was convinced that Internet is the way for him if he wants to achieve that.
