Event description
A dialogue between the music and dance styles of South Asia and the West featuring the best local performing talents!

About this event

SAMVAAD celebrates the diversity and unity of the sounds and movements of South Asia and the West through music and dance.

Local talents come together for a conversation in melody, rhythm and movement - where Hindustani vocal music meets the piano, where the tabla and mridangam drums of South Asia have a tete-a-tete with jazz drums, and where Kathak and Mohiniyattam dance move in tandem with Chinese traditional styles.
