Baluji Shrivastav OBE – Seasons of India
Saturday 16 November – 7.30pm
Be transported to India and experience its six seasons through the mesmerising music of Baluji Shrivastav OBE, celebrated blind Indian sitarist and composer, accompanied by tabla.
Baluji is one of the greatest instrumentalists India has produced, excelling in sitar, surbahar, dilruba, pakhavaj and tabla. His ability to concentrate on sound as his primary mode of interaction with the world has enriched his musicality and his courageous attitude to life is reflected in his approach to music. Firmly established in the Hindustani classical tradition, he delights in exploring music in all its forms and composes for film, dance, theatre and original works for Western orchestra and Indian ensembles. He has performed with Stevie Wonder, Shakira, Massive Attack and Coldplay.
Baluji’s performance will be a wonderful opportunity to hear classical Indian music at its best, with a selection of pieces from his upcoming album, (ARC).
The majority of performances at Kala Sangam are now Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Kala Sangam, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected helps pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
