We are delighted to be collaborating with St George’s Bristol to bring two of the most prominent Indian flautists to the UK on 17th February 2024. We are also presenting these two talented artists at Cadogan Hall, London on 18th February 2024.
The Indian flute players will be collaborating with UK based artists Shahbaz Hussain on tabla and another Carnatic percussion musician. Presented by St George’s Bristol in partnership with Asian Arts Agency.
Rakesh is a child prodigy and the nephew of flute maestro Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia. Just like his legendary uncle, Rakesh possesses the right balance of strength and serenity, very critical factors for an exceptional flautist. His dextrous blowing technique coupled with his training of ‘Swar’ and ‘Tala’ exudes adeptly in his emotions through the hollow piece of bamboo. Rakesh has enthralled audiences at classical and semi-classical concerts worldwide.
Trained by father Subramanyam and legendary vocalists Palghat K.V. Narayanaswami and Pandit Jasraj in Hindustani Music, Shashank is presently considered one of the best Bamboo Flute artists and is hailed so by the Indian and international media alike. The BBC World TV telecast a documentary on Shashank titled Destination Music in 2006.
This unique Indian flute concert will feature two of the most prominent Indian flute players in the world collaborating with UK based artists Shahbaz Hussain on Tabla and Bangalore Parkash on Carnatic percussion.
