Sarangi maestro Sarwar Hussain Khan and one of the world's leading rudra veena musicians, Jyoti Hegde, perform this exciting double-bill.

Sarwar Hussain Khan was born into an illustrious sarangi family. The son of Ustad Anwar Hussain and grandson of stalwart, Ustad Abdul Latif Khan Sahab, he has developed a style which gives the audience deeply stirring and richly coloured sounds. At his UK debut performance, he will present his unique style of playing tappa, accompanied by the vibrant young tabla player, Debjit Patitundi, student of the late Pandit Subhankar Banerjee.

Dhrupad is the foremost improvisational classical system from India, rooted in its micro tonal slow to fast development. The primal sounds of the rudra veena comes alive in the hands of Jyoti Hegde as she micro bends the raga (melody) notes. She returns to London after her 2014 Darbar Festival debut and is accompanied by Surdarshan Chana, one of India's senior jori players.
