This concert will take us through ragas for different times of the day, from morning until night, as well as different time-cycles or talas. The young stars are Soumik Datta on sarod, Roopa Panesar on sitar, the main plucked instruments of Hindustani music, and Shahbaz Hussain on tabla. As it’s June, the time of the monsoon, the concert will also include a piece in the stormy and torrential raga Malhar.
As part of Kings Place’s year-long Time Unwrapped series, two Songlines Encounters concerts examine the concept of Time in Indian music. Times of the day, times of the year, times in history and different rhythmical cycles as well. With some helpful explanations along the way, a rare chance to unravel the many ways in which time exerts its power over the subcontinent’s classical music.
