Akram Khan, Raga & Tala Experience

Thu 09 November, 06:30 PM, Sadlers Well’s

Session 1

Akram Khan kathak dance solo

Probably the most awaited and anticipated excerpt solo. Akram Khan delivers a short but epic Indian kathak solo. Probably the last time you will get to see this genius perform kathak dance. Not to be missed.

Session 2

Patri Satish Kumar mridangam

Tavil Triplicane Sekar tavil

Amrit Khanjira khanjira

Lord Shiva, is the keeper of the damaru or percussion, which provides the rhythmic beats and sounds of deep emotional resonance. Kumar, a musician from the great Carnatic tradition, is quite simply one of the most outstanding performers of our era. Praised for his technique, supreme musicality, passion and effortless virtuosity on the mridangam, he is accompanied by two of India’s finest groove masters.

Session 3

Pravin Godkhindi bansuri

Surpreet Deshpande tabla

Discover the bansuri attributed to Lord Krishna. The charismatic Godkhindi unravels romantic ragas combined with Deshpande’s masterful rhythmic improvisation. Together they unfold lilting and beautiful Hindustani ragas.
