On 6th of October in collaboration with Darbar Festival, DesiYUP will host a concert with Debasmita Bhattacharya. Before this concert Darbar Festival founder and programming director Sandeep Virdee will give an inspirational talk about organizing events, building yourself up as an artist and about how he has made Darbar Festival so succesful. This is a talk that emerging artists and organizers cannot miss.
This most promising Indian classical concert features India’s finest musicians and two living legends Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia and Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. The two phenomenal icons of Hindustani classical music will be sharing the stage in the Netherlands for the first time together.
Chaurasia is known for his enchanting folk instrument bansuri (bamboo flute) and Sharma is the master of the string instrument santoor (a melodic string instrument with Persian lineage). Fifty years ago they made one of the great fusion albums “Call of the Valley” (1967). To see the two maestro’s live together time will be a magical experience.
