Music of India: Roopa Panesar

Sun 9 Oct



Music that Transports

After her blazing and sell out concert at the Darbar Festival 2021, Roopa Panesar returns to her hometown to perform India’s iconic instrument, the sitar, accompanied by the extraordinary tabla master, Yashwant Vaishnav. Immerse yourself into an evening of the very best of Indian classical music – allow yourself wash away the dust of everyday life and enjoy the holistic wellbeing of raga music. Let the intricately embellished ragas make you swoon to a celestial, almost otherworldly love.

Throughout years of rigorous training and critically lauded performances, Panesar has developed a unique tone and sound on the sitar. She is emblematic of UK’s homegrown talent bringing a sustained appreciation and immersion of the artform to the diaspora and a global audience. Today, Panesar is creating a trademark of delivering the very best of raga music on the sitar as she unfolds ragas through to beautifully executed virtuosic crescendos.

Vaishnav, a child prodigy, is fast emerging as India’s most sought-after tabla player. He makes his debut Leicester concert and provides both sensitive and exhilarating accompaniment.

Let us introduce you to, or deepen your experience of, some of the finest improvised music in the world. You’ll be smitten!
