Swar Aalap has a history of presenting to the public the lifetime contribution and artistry of Indian musicians. In a single show the focus is maintained on an unrecognized musician and his/her career is highlighted in a most musical and entertaining manner. Musician's interview, their live performance with orchestra and singers, relevant video clips and a special video montage of the artiste are interspersed cleverly into a crisp and lively presentation of 2-2½ hours. The event also has live endorsements from co-musicians and celebrities like actors Kamini Kaushal, Johnny Lever, radio anchor Amin Sayani etc. The evening ends with a quick conference of the Swar Aalap Lifetime Achievement award to the chosen musician. The show is attended by musicians, music lovers and lay listeners alike.
