Ashok Hande of MARATHI BAANA fame, celebrates the silver anniversary of his banner Chaurang with as many as nine musical shows all across Mumbai. "There are three basic colours - red, blue and yellow and when we add the fourth colour of our music to it, you get Chaurang," explains founder, director, performer and the head of the musical show, Ashok Hande.

The anniversary is being celebrated with a bouquet of nine musical shows - MANIK MOTI (based on Marathi singer Manik Verma's life and music), GANGA JAMUNA (based on famous Marathi music director P Savlaram's compositions), AMRUT LATA (75 of Lata Mangeshkar's hand-picked songs), MADHURBALA (biography of the beautiful actress through her songs), AWAZ KI DUNIYA (based on Bollywood classic songs), MANGAL GAANI DANGAL GAANI (a cocktail of Marathi songs), GAANE SUHANE (all-time hit Hindi songs), AZAADI 60 (commemorating Indian history and 60 years of its independence) and of course MARATHI BAANA, the celebrated cultural extravaganza of Maharashtra - from bhajan to lavni and from adivasi dances to Ganesh aarti. "All of our shows are performed live with live music," Hande points out.

With 125 performers, Hande showcases the entire range of Maharashtra's rich musical legacy and it would be treat for connoisseurs to catch the silver jubilee festival.
