Britain is home to a variety of talented musicians from all regions & genres of Indian classical music. They bring a style which is authentic, Indian, traditional & adapted to the British music scene. In this concert, two contrasting styles of North & South Indian vocal music take centre stage. North Indian Vocal music is at times meditative & devotional, with skillful passages of improvisation & repetition. South Indian vocalists draw from the huge array of compositions that are based on devotional & traditional culture. Nilanjana De is an award winning singer from Kolkata & the 2014 Milapfest Sangeet Ratna Award winner. She performs a variety of improvised & composed works, accompanied on Harmonium (Rekesh Chauhan) & Tabla (Kousic Sen).
