A showcase of exhilarating Indian classical dance and music.

 

Prior to the performance it was clear that attendees were ready to join in the showboating as they came dressed in traditional Indian outfits, such as Sarees and Kurtas, and a sea of rainbow colours soared through the theatre.

Akram Khan, London 2010

Akram Khan’s solo Kathak dance was mesmerising to watch and every step was in perfect sync of the vibrant Mridangam beats executed by Satish Kumar . This was interspersed with the melodious sounds of the Bansuri effortlessly played by Pravin Godkhindi.

 

The audience was left spellbound by the performances of these master artists.

 

The Darbar festival has certainly secured a permanent place in the London cultural landscape.

About Ranjit Shergill

I love opinions whether I agree or disagree with them and as such writing presents me with the golden opportunity to share my views across a large landscape of readers. My aspiration is to draw viewership from all backgrounds, thereby reaching out to a worldwide audience. Whilst on a flight to India when I was seven years old I sang jingle bells for the whole duration of the flight. This subsequently led to my growing interests in aviation and indeed travelling. I currently work in Sports Analytics and see my job as a privilege getting to watch sport which most followers would do for free! It is safe to say that I am addicted to travelling, whether it be going on off the beaten track experiences that I endured during my trip through the backroads of Central America or going on city bike tours in glamorous settings such as the River Danube. I embrace cultural hotspots and feel that travelling combines exciting adventures with humbling life experiences. I currently reside in my hometown of Harrow in London, United Kingdom. Given that London is one of the most visited and storied cities in the world, I feel very privileged to have grown up in such an environment. !
