The Mujumdars’ private collection of music instruments testifies their love for the seven notes

The Mujumdarwada in Kasba Peth has always given patronage to music and arts. Old timers still remember the concerts and music soirees that were held at the wada, under the patronage of Abasaheb Mujumdar.

In his memory and as a testimony to the old glory, the present generation has maintained a private museum which has a collection of musical instruments like surbahar, sitar, dilruba, taus, veena and basri.

“Abasaheb was a connoisseur of music and also played some of the instruments proficiently. All these instruments are from his time and era,” informs Anupama Majumdar, Abasaheb’s granddaughter-in-law.

She and her doctor daughter also play surbahar. And, at present, Anupama is working on a book that will depict the work done by her grandfather-in-law, especially in the field of music.
