A soundscape of musical traditions infused with contemporary flavours

Come and celebrate the colour and vitality of Spring at this special event featuring musicians Rekesh Chauhan (piano), Alok Verma (tabla/percussion) and John Garner (violin).

Collectively known as Project Avartan, they have toured internationally, performing to a wide range of audiences and sharing the stage with world-renowned artists.

Avartan, meaning cycle, weaves in influences from various World Music styles, with an emphasis on the classical backgrounds that the trio share. The group will explore a soundscape of musical traditions infused with contemporary flavours, as well as some popular Bollywood numbers.

The musicians will be joined on stage by special guest vocalist Devdutt Joshi. Dev has performed with artists such as Ghulam Ali, Ustad Tari Khan (tabla), Mahalaxmi Iyer and Susheela Rahman and has performed concerts in the USA, Canada, India and Europe.

Students and troupe members from Aaja Nachle Let’s Dance will open the evening with a lively performance of Bollywood dance.
