Concerts - Sunset Song

Sunset Song, was an Indian classical performance featuring Ustad Dharambir Singh, Dr Vijay Rajput and Bhupinder Singh Chaggar, in a stunning darbar setting at Opera North's Howard Assembly Room.

Central to Hindustani tradition is the concept of performing ragas at specific times of the day and year, allowing the composition to reveal the true essence and beauty of the music.  What unfolded was a truly magical experience. In 'Sunset Song' a raga for sunset was paired with another played during the monsoon (in India later in the year, but in UK rather suitable for April showers).

Performed in a relaxed setting amongst the audience, by musicians included the highly esteemed Ustad Dharamabir Singh MBE on Sitar, Dr. Vijay Rajput on Vocals, Sri Bhupinder Singh on Percussion, Kaviraj Singh on Santoor, Dilrani Kaur on Surmandal and Seetal Kaur Gahir on Tanpura.
