Classical Music of India and Pakistan

The Proms marks the 70th anniversary of partition and independence on the Indian subcontinent with a concert curated by Darbar Trust producers of Darbar Festival representing the classical music of India and Pakistan. Explore the region's diverse musical culture in performances celebrating three very different traditions. India's great maestro, Pandit Budhaditya Mukherjee performs ragas on the iconic sitar from the Hindustani music of North India, while South India's Carnatic music is more strongly melodic, coloured by the distinctive timbres of the Carnatic violin and veena. The Sufi music of Pakistan provides an ecstatic climax to this Late Night Prom, weaving rich, mesmeric tapestries of sound.
