Ragas with Soul - Abhisek Lahiri & Sanju Sahai

Single Bill

Immerse Yourself in Melody and Indian Flavour 

Join us for an enchanting evening of Indian classical music as the maestro Abhisek Lahiri takes centre stage with his soulful sarod, accompanied by the rhythmic brilliance of Sanju Sahai on the tabla.

The charismatic duo, Lahiri and Sahai unravel romantic evening ragas. Lahiri is a Kolkata-based sarod player who trained under his father Pandit Alok Lahiri. “My father says that a gharana gives identity to a musician, but why restrict music in the name of gharana”, he remarks. According to him, the hallmark of his presentation lies in blending of the best from these three styles of Indian schools of music – the Shahjahanpur, Maihar and Senia Bangash gharanas. 

Abhisek Lahiri's mastery of the sarod will transport you to a realm of emotive melodies, each note resonating with tradition and innovation. Sanju Sahai's tabla beats, intricately woven into the fabric of the performance, promise to create a rhythmic tapestry that captivates the senses. 

Whether you're a seasoned enthusiast or a newcomer to the world of classical music, this event guarantees a sensory-rich experience that transcends the ordinary. 

Let the sound of the sarod wash away the stresses and strains of our daily city lives transporting us into the sound of nature for a profoundly healing experience, a celebration of artistry that promises to leave a lasting imprint on your heart and palate! 

Don’t forget to grab yourself a FREE chai and Indian street food during the interval and transport yourself into India through the sounds of the sarod.
