We’ve all been to concerts but have you ever been to one that happens in a space as personal as someone’s home? The Living Room Kutcheri is bringing a raw and real music experience to you with its curated performances that happen in a cosy living room.

Music In The House

Inspired by the chamber concerts her mother used to host during festivals and pujas, Gurupriya Atreya decided to create an intimate artistic experience by inviting people to witness raw, creative performances by great talent in a space as personal as her living room. Along with her husband Akhil, she now hosts The Living Room Kutcheri, where a concert takes place in their home on a Saturday evening every month. There are no amplifiers or mics in here, so it’s a completely authentic and raw musical experience. The Living Room Kutcheri doesn’t restrict itself in terms of musical genres featuring both Indian and Western styles and traditional and contemporary pieces. As kutcheri means when people come together for art, these performances are not restricted to musical concerts alone. The event can feature any artistic talent — from dance to storytelling. And these concerts are completely free. All you need to do is drop them an email at and RSVP.

A Concerted Effort

A playback singer herself, Gurupriya has worked with the who’s who of the music world including big names like GV Prakash and Vasu Dixit. Using her established musical connections, she brings a musical or artistic act to her home to perform. Since it’s a relatively small space, these concerts are super exclusive and they only allow a maximum of forty audience members for each event.

The living room belongs to their house in Malleswaran. You should receive a reply to your email confirming your attendance and the complete address of the home. Although the concert is entirely free, there will be a collection box where you can contribute to show your appreciation of the performance {though you are under no compulsion to drop in anything}. All proceeds will go to the artiste. There are even bits of handmade paper lying on the table that Gurupriya calls ‘love notes’, where you can write a personal note of appreciation to the performing artiste, which they will take home with them.


Stay glued to their Facebook page here to keep track of their event schedule, so you can send them a mail requesting permission to attend as soon as possible, giving you a better chance of gaining access to these exclusive performances.
