A thrilling double bill featuring the much-awaited sarod maestro, Alam Khan from Hindustani (north India) and the revered duo, Ranjani & Gayatri Sisters from the Carnatic south.

Alam Khan returns to London after 12 years to demonstrate the legacy of the great sarod masters through his poetic aesthetics  from the sensitive to the grandest of ragas. He is accompanied by one of India’s greatest tabla masters, Pandit Yogesh Samsi, who guides the rhythmic tempo through a gradual building up to the world’s fastest improvisation, sure to raise your heartbeat to a crescendo. 

India's most sought after stars of the Carnatic tradition, siblings Ranjani and Gayatri were born into a musical family and developed their talents from a young age. As vocal artists and violinists, they are renowned for the lyrical luminosity and purity with which they continue to present Carnatic music to audiences around the world. Tonight, they are accompanied by stalwart musicians on the violin, mridangam (double barrelled drum) and the ghatam.
