The Great British Gharana: Showcase

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Hear the latest creations of some of Britain's best Indian musicians, performing in specially curated mini ensemble performances featuring a variety of instruments like sitar, veena, flute, violin, tabla and mridangam, that represent the best of Hindustani and Carnatic music. With music created just for the showcase, Great British Gharana is the definition of the new wave of Indian music that is ingrained in our culture.

Gharana means 'school' or 'style' of music, and Britain is home to a wealth of talented Indian classical musicians – who have learned, preserved and innovated within the tradition. Their style of music is both new and traditional, and combines ancient and modern with Indian and Western influences, creating a new approach to the form, which was coined 'Great British Gharana' by Milapfest.
