    We recently presented two successful concerts with Anupama Bhagwat and Gurdain Rayatt. The concerts took place at St George’s Bristol and Glastonbury Town Hall. Read on to learn more about our Bristol & Glastonbury concert success.

    Anupama Bhagwat, a leading sitar player from India performed emotive and top quality raagas.  Gurdain Rayatt provided outstanding tabla accompaniment.  The artistes performed to a sold-out audience at St George’s Bristol’s new addition, The Glass Studio;  and we presented our second concert at Glastonbury Town Hall.

    At St George’s Bristol, Anupama and Gurdain led a Q & A session to an eager and fascinated audience who were delighted to learn more about the traditional art form. Besides this, audience members had the opportunity to talk with the artistes after the concert. CD’s were available and were personally signed by the artistes.

    The concerts were a success. They were enjoyed by captivated audience members, both new to and well versed in Indian classical music.

    Audience Feedback | Bristol & Glastonbury Concert Success

    Feedback from St George’s Bristol included – 

    “Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. In actuality all three of us really enjoyed it. More world CLASSICAL music please!…”

    We both really enjoyed the event. It was really high-quality performance and I learnt something new about the instruments and style of music…”

    “Wonderful, thrilling, worth the journey from Cardiff.”

    Emma Champion wrote in her blog:

    I was utterly transported and moved to another plain and place by what I heard, it was magnificent. Time utterly melted and I felt a deep sense of calm and peacefulness 

    Jeffrey Johns stated on Instagram:

    “…they played hypnotic Raga’s that acted as conversation between the two instruments, building in speed and different textures building in melodies. “

    Glastonbury audience members feedback included-

    “Great to have world-class performers like Anupama outside of London and other major cities.”

    “Lovely concert and venue. Good acoustic in Glastonbury Town Hall. Loved it! Great to see such great Indian artists in Glastonbury.”

    “The interaction between the musicians was fantastic. They were both wonderful exponents who transported you. Wonderful to be in the presence of masters.”

    ” How the two musicians blend together into the most beautiful harmonies – absolutely incredible.”

    “The performance was amazing and I’m grateful for the chance to see the artists play.”

    The concerts were a special treat for Indian classical music lovers indeed!
