Session 1

Abhishek Borkar sarod

Praashekh Borkar sarod

Parimal Chakraborty tabla

Discover two of today’s most respected emerging sarod soloists, two brothers, whose music is inspired by Ustad Allauddin Khan, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Pandit Nikhil Banerjee and of course their father, Pandit Shekhar Borkar. It is said that the sarod evolved from the rabaab, which was brought to India by horseback musicians from Afghanistan. The Borkar’s virtuosity and ability to harmonise will leave you in awe, as they weave through evening ragas. They are accompanied by the brilliant master of tabla, Chakraborty.  For all three musicians, this is their first appearance in the UK.
