Mid-day Mantra: Jesse Bannister & Sarvar Sabri

Loading Events

A free monthly series presenting music from India to uplift the spirit on Saturday lunchtimes

Escape the hurly-burly, as once a month sampad and Town Hall Symphony Hall present outstanding Asian artists from the UK and the Indian subcontinent in relaxed, informal sessions. Chill out, take your shoes off, close your eyes and experience the richness and variety of India’s musical heritage.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Giuliano Modarelli and Bhupinder Singh Chagger are no longer able to perform at this event, as originally advertised.

They will be replaced by jazz saxophone maestro Jesse Bannister and internationally renowned tabla player and composer Sarvar Sabri.

As a talented saxophonist and composer, Jesse meanders between indo-jazz and the Indian Classical ragas on saxophone. He has written music for the Halle Orchestra as well as television and theatre productions. Over the years he has collaborated with many artists including Bickram Ghosh, Siva Raman, Talvin Singh, and Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

“Jesse has a unique sound that will challenge the horizons of saxophone players worldwide for many decades.” Alicia Karen Elkins
