As Independence Day fever builds up here in England, there’s a lot of fine performances to choose from, if you’re feeling home-sick.
There was Nitin Sawhney & Anoushka Shanker at the Proms last week, with a lot of Bollywood dhin-chak sounding music.
29 September – Kavita Krishnamurthy performs 60 years of Bollywood Hits at the Barbican. Promises to be a fun evening. Seats are almost sold out, so hurry! Other performers on the evening are Hariharan, Alka Yagnik & Roop Kumar Rathod accompanied by their orchestra and compered by Harish Bhimani.
Then there’s the whole India Now festival that’s on in London from July to September with lots of stuff happening.
If you know of any other event, let me know.
