United Nations of Indian Classical Music

United Nations of Indian Classical Music

Presenting on Saturday February 23rd (rescheduled after Cyclone Oswald), United Nations of Indian Classical Music brings together 7 accomplished Indian classical artists from around the world in a celebration of Indian classical culture. This world class concert will be the first in BEMAC’s new Crossings series. Join us this year at the Queensland Multicultural Arts Centre as we criss-cross the globe on a musical odyssey featuring artists from India to Sudan, Iran to Japan, Vanuatu to the Northern Territory and who knows where else!

Experience the calm of ancient Dhrupad vocals by Yuki Taniguchi Flindell (Japan), the beauty of Bharat Natyam dance by Mathuja Bavan (Sri Lanka) and the exhilaration of high energy khayals and geets by Tahir Qawwal (Canada). The programme will culminate in a dynamic jugalbandi (duet) between Saikat Bhattacharya (India) on sitar and Vinod Prasanna (India/Melbourne) on bansuri (bamboo flute). Accompaniment will be provided by special guest tabla maestro from Sydney, Maharshi Raval (India) and Brisbane’s own Shen Flindell (Australia). Event sponsors Sitar Restaurant will be providing delicious veggie samosas and chai during the interval.
