Noun. September 30, 2011, Word of the Day
A jugalbandi is a beautiful word that comes from Urdu which means "entwined twins." It is a performance of Indian classical music when two soloists typically from different musical traditions (eg. one from Carnatic and one from Hindustani) play a duet and playfully compete.
The defining characteristic of the Jugalbandi is that no one musician dominates. They strive to create beautiful harmony.
I have some foreign guests at Sundance Bangalore and want to take them to a Jugalbandi performance this evening.
