Souful Indian classical music with Anupama Bhagwat (sitar) and Gurdain Rayatt (tabla).

Asian Arts Agency presents one of India’s leading female sitar players, Anupama Bhagwat, in two special concerts this September in Bristol and Glastonbury, accompanied by Gurdain Rayatt on tabla.

A Sunday afternoon concert in the new Glass Studio at St George’s Bristol offers an intimate listening experience perfect for those new to the rich beauty of Indian classical music or already well versed in the sounds of raga.

At Glastonbury Town Hall the artists will present a full evening concert.

ABOUT:

Anupama Bhagwat’s tremendous control of the sitar, love for the raga and virtuoso skill is a sheer delight to listen to. Her style is characterized by scintillating fast taans, mastery of the meditative alaap, and brilliant fluency of melody (raaga-bhava), while remaining true to tradition.

Anupama Bhagwat has been performing around the world since 1995, including performances at London’s Southbank Centre. With a versatile and eclectic style, her sensitivity and erudition has taken her to the highest echelons of the modern genre.

Gurdain Rayatt is one of the UK’s most exciting tabla players. Trained both in the UK and India, his performances range from traditional Indian classical music to cross-cultural and experimental music. Gurdain regularly performs with the world’s best Indian classical musicians, including Anoushka Shankar and Ustad Amjad Ali Khan.
