What is the heart of Indian Music? What is the Power of Melody?

Experience Music through one of the most Royal instruments of India, the Sitar accompanied by the Tabla. Celebrated Sitar Maestro and Indian Music Icon Niladri Kumar brings you an unparalleled immersive experience of the timeless expanse of Classical Indian Heritage through his unique, captivating, and popularly loved style. Trained under his father and Guru, Pandit Kartick Kumar, the senior disciple of Pandit Ravi Shankar, Niladri was heralded as a prodigy and has since pushed the boundaries of classical music.
The audience will have a flavour of how an Indian music concert unwraps. It starts with the ‘alaap portions’, the depth of the raag, and goes into the ‘Jod’ gat and jhala. What makes it most fascinating is that it all happens at that moment—improvised.
For the first time, the maestro will perform in Leicester accompanied by the young virtuoso tabla player Yashwant Vaishnav. Yashwant embarked on his musical journey at three and is a natural talent. Guided by revered mentors, he promises an extraordinary musical synergy with Niladri Kumar's sitar, uniting tradition and innovation.
The intricacies and emotions of the Raag and Taal will surely give you a memorable and once-in-a-lifetime Indian music experience. Please take advantage of the opportunity to witness the incredible maestro as he continues to captivate audiences worldwide with his culturally rooted yet contemporary musical style.
