Experience a rare treat in Indian music, the Mandolin, as it is played to perfection by one of the most impressive musicians in the world. U. Rajesh is one of the most sought after classical artistes currently in India, having played with nearly all of the country’s top musical stars and recorded dozens of albums. He collaborated with John McLaughlin on the Grammy nominated album Floating Point and his 2006 performance in New York was voted among the best concerts of the year by the New Yorker magazine.

U. Rajesh has toured globally and collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, including Ustad Zakir Hussain, Ustad Sultan Khan, Mike Marshall, Louis Banks, and Ranjit Barot. He has performed live with Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra and has worked on an album with the London Chamber Orchestra.

The mandolin virtuoso is joined by master percussionists Kousic Sen (on tabla) and RN Prakash (on mridangam), known across the globe for raising concert experiences to new heights with their rhythmic delights.

This concert is an on tour production from Indika, Europe’s largest annual festival of classical Indian arts. 

Indika is Europe’s finest festival of Indian arts curated by Milapfest and will be running in venues across Liverpool and beyond from 17th October to 3rd November. For full listings, click here.

Absolutely thrilled. Looking forward to watching Mandolin Rajesh perform live. One of the best Carnatic musicians in the field right now, who plays the instrument so beautifully, with such perfection and dexterity.
