Darbar Festival 2011 on BBC Radio 3 World Routes

BBC 3 World Routes programme are covering this years Darbar Festival 2011, a perfect opportunity for anyone who missed out on the event to take a glimpse of what was on.

Lopa Kothari and Jameela Siddiqi present highlights from the Darbar Festival of Indian classical music, held last month at Kings Place in London. Featuring a morning raga from the powerful voice of Arati Ankalikar-Tikekar, and a sarod recital from Alam Khan, who as the son of Indian legend Ali Akbar Khan, has to balance his 500-year heritage with an upbringing in contemporary California.

This is the first of a pair of programmes from this year’s Darbar Festival. The Darbar Festival is the biggest event of its kind in Europe: artists from both North and South Indian musical traditions were presented in fourteen concerts over the Easter weekend – a special feature of Darbar is that the concerts are held across the day from morning until night, allowing for the different ragas to be heard in their true time context. Lopa Kothari and Jameela Siddiqi will be bringing their own expertise and insights to these programmes, as well as talking to the performers themselves.

  1. India as a country has made it big in many fields of art like music or movies, dancing and painting etc. It remains home for some of the best talents that the world has ever seen. All these artists today have made a mark on the international front owing it to their skills and religious practice. They have taken the Indian art, culture, music and dance beyond geographic boundaries. In case of the Indian singers, their soothing voices have reached out to and won many hearts globally. When it comes to Bollywood Hindi music, old is gold proves to be true. Eminent composers and singers like Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, S.P. Balasubramaniam etc. have created music that everyone loves to listen to even today. ;
