Experience an evening of virtuosic Indian music as Soumik Datta highlights the versatility of the sarod and the sublime Malladi Brothers showcase their trademark Carnatic vocals.

British Indian composer Soumik Datta has made it his mission to bring the sarod – a 19 stringed fretless instrument which evolved from its roots from Afghanistan into the world of contemporary music. Having described himself as a ‘slave to the instrument’, his innovative solos and boundary pushing output has led to collaborations with artists as diverse as Anoushka Shankar and Beyoncé. He is accompanied by the master of tabla, Sukvinder Singh

The Malladi Brothers, Malladi Sreeramprasad and Malladi Ravikumar, are a Carnatic music vocalist duo. They started their music education under Malladi Srirammurthy and Malladi Suri Babu, their grandfather and father respectively. Mixing together a wide range of existing composition with a flair for improvisation, what remains constant are two consonant voices in perfect harmony. They are accompanied by stalwart musicians.
