Ragas with Soul: Akash Parekar + Junaid Ali

Friday 26 April 2024

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Don’t miss the monthly Indian classical music lunchtime concerts featuring Akash Parekar on the sitar and the rhythmic beats of Junaid Ali on the tabla.

Immerse yourself into India’s foremost classical instruments; the sitar and tabla. The Indian classical music tradition is referred to as raga and tala – the melodic framework and rhythmic base. In this concert Akash, a rising star of the sitar, performs afternoon ragas that will transport you from the rush of daily London life.

Experience the intricate artistry of Akash Parekar as he draws out raga melodies from his sitar, weaving a spellbinding narrative that captivates the heart and mind. Feel the pulse of the music come alive with Junaid Ali’s masterful tabla accompaniment, as he skilfully intertwines complex rhythms with effortless grace.

Join us for this afternoon concert and enjoy lunch or drink in the Café in the Crypt.
