Darbar Festival 2011

Darbar – A four day extravaganza of Indian Classical Music

From Thur 21st April – Sun 24th April 2011 a huge array of UK’s finest upcoming musicians and Internationally lauded artists come together to present ‘the highest quality of Indian classical music’.

Established since 2006, Darbar has proven to win accolades from fans who eagerly await year after year for the event. This year the headlines include a trickling of established world class musicians with a mix of contemporary artists, presenting a range of genres from Dhrupad of Uday Bhawalkar to the contemporary exuberance of Madras String Quartet.

My Picks:

Session 8: Dhrupad of Tagore – Dhrupad is very close to my heart and forms the oldest genre of Hindustani Classical Music. Having heard Uday Bhawalkay before, his experimental style and grasp of dhrupad is a clear mark of his Dagarvani heritage.

Session 9: A Sitar recital followed by Ragas with Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar – The phrase ‘leave the best till last’, is befitting to Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar. An enjoyment not to be missed.
