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.
