SAMA Arts Network, The Raga Fellowship Foundation and Canada Council for the Arts are proud and excited to bring to the listeners of London the magic of classical Indian instrumental music.
The Autumn Barzākh features a jugalbandi or musical collaboration between three contemporary maestros of Hindustani classical music: Arnab Chakrabarty (sarod), Roopa Panesar (sitar) and Shahbaz Hussain (tabla). Leading the prestigious artistic lineages of their gurus, these three virtuosos have fused the best of traditional music with a contemporary spin.
Expect to be dazzled by the various compositions that the artists will play in the traditional rāgas of the subcontinent. Listeners can look forward to the highly anticipated musical dialogue between the instruments, as well as a special solo tabla component in the middle that will highlight the intricacies of tāla – a subcontinental system of percussive rhythm. This event is specially curated with the dynamic sensibilities of a diverse, cosmopolitan audience in mind and will feature a mix of the introspective elements of rāga music and the playful energy of instrumental techniques.
Named after the Sufi philosophy of the Barzākh, the spiritual-aesthetic zone that lies between heaven and earth, this concert promises to be an elevating and nourishing experience.
