Origin of Pandit Motiram Pandit Maniram Sangeet Samaroh
Pandit Motiram Pandit Maniram Sangeet Samaroh was started in 1972 by Pandit Jasraj because of his bond with Hyderabad as he spent his childhood here and his father, Pandit Motiram's Samadhi is in the city. Maharaja Kishan Prasad Bahadur took his father to Chowmahalla Palace. His father died in 1934, five hours before his concert at Chowmahalla Palace, where he was to be announced as the Royal musician in the court of Osman Ali Khan. Motiram and Maniram were not only vocalists but composers of repute. Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and Zakir Hussain were introduced to the city audience for the first time in 1972 during the same festival.
