Ustad Sabri Khan Memorial Concert

mac Birmingham Cannon Hill Park, B12 9QH

Featuring an excerpt of a new work 'Dastaan' by Sonia Sabri Company.

Join Sonia Sabri Company for a very special evening dedicated to the legendary Sarangi maestro, the late Ustad Sabri Khan.

As one of the most celebrated musicians and pioneers of the Sarangi during both the 20th and 21st centuries, his name was synonymous with this astonishingly beautiful and quintessentially Indian classical instrument. The international concert will include Qawwali, Sarangi and music from Iran on Sehtar.
Sonia Sabria Company - Calligraphy

The evening also previews an excerpt of Sonia Sabri Company’s new work by Sabri Ensemble, Dastaan, an emotive and unique experience of film projection, inspired by Persian Calligraphy and accompanied by original live music.

In Dastaan the calligraphy comes alive and dances across the screen, conveying a poignant meeting of the interlinked cultures of India and Persia and transforming to reflect a modern, multi-cultural Britain.

Recommended age 5+

The sarangi is a bowed, short-necked string instrument from India which is used in Indian classical music. The repertoire of sarangi players is traditionally very closely related to vocal music.
