Sangeet Mela 2014
07 Sep 2014 | Sunday 1:00pm to 9:00pm
Presented by Sangeet Premi Club and EthnoSuperLounge, Sangeet Mela 2014 brings together talented international and interstate musicians in collaboration with the best of Brisbane’s North Indian classical artists in a celebration of Hindustani classical music and dance on a scale never before seen in Brisbane.
The inaugural Sangeet Mela will feature two international artists: Govinda Chakraborty (Delhi) recently retired as professor of tabla at Kathak Kendra (the national Kathak dance college); Sangeet Mishra (Mumbai) represents the 8th generation of sarangi masters in his highly respected family. Both artists will be enriching the festival with their able accompaniment and dynamic solo performances.
Visiting from Sydney will be accomplished classical vocalist Dr Vivek Apte. Tabla master Maharshi Raval completes the roster of artists visiting Brisbane for the festival, joining local artists including Rahim Zullah (vocal), Saikat Bhattacharya (sitar), Darshana Hingu (Kathak dance) and Shen Flindell (tabla).
Other highlights include Kathak dance with live musical accompaniment, and delicious food and drinks by Sitar Restaurant.
