The perfect Mother's day gift of music: Kaushiki Chakraborty, the khayal vocalist, returns to London for an afternoon of raga music to transport you far from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Chakraborty is known for her warm charm and the virtuosic timbre of her voice, which meanders around the exploration and development of raga phrases, leaving audiences in awe of the purity of the raga music.
It’s a chance to immerse yourself in the holistic nature of Indian vocal music and deepen your spiritual and meditative experiences. This is not just slow music: Chakraborty develops ragas into new forms of the fastest improvisation and heightened state of consciousness.
