Ugam, which means ‘birth’ gives legendary Indian artists the chance to refer their students to the Jaipur Gems Charitable Trust to take part in the Ugam event. Visited by hundreds of music fans, scholars and industry experts each year, Ugam has quickly become a much-anticipated annual event in the Hindustani music scene.
‘Udaan’ started with a dream to promote young upcoming musicians, who have been awarded with a scholarship from the Jaipur Gems Charitable Trust. Meaning ‘flight’, this is the time when art comes into its own, with all students encouraged to fulfill their artistic dreams and showcase the culmination of talents and skills they have learnt over the past two years.
Performing side-by-side with some of the greatest Hindustani artists, Udaan is a momentous opportunity for the students and will set them up for a very successful career in their desired field. This is the moment they step out into the world as a classically trained musician, ready to ignite and inspire their audiences.
