Satyajit Talwalkar + Wahane Sisters Duet

Darbar Festival

Sanskrati and Prakrati Wahane playing their instruments in front of a dark background

Witness an explosive tabla solo in this double bill along with the first concert outside of India by three child prodigies.

Discovered from Facebook in 2016, Sanskrati Wahane left Indian classical music connoisseurs in awe. Joined by her sister Prakati, they perform their first international concert; a raw, deeply musical exploration of ragas. The sisters are trained by their father Lokesh Wahane and taught by the legendary Ustad Shahid Parvez and Pandit Suresh Talwalkar. Another young star accompanies them; discovered aged nine from YouTube, Yashwant Vaishnav has emerged as one of India’s finest tabla talents.

Creating a unique sound from rhythmic patterns, Satyajit Talwalkar is a lightning speed tabla player at the top of his creative ability, having learnt from his father, the legendary Pandit Suresh Talkwalkar. In his first London solo performance, he performs slow improvisations and groovy permutations, ending with a crescendo of mind-bending set pieces.
