What’s On

The Indus Festival

The Indus Festival, is a series of performances in celebration of the classical and contemporary arts of South Asia. We are presenting a number of artists in collaboration with organisations from the East region. This will be the basis for all future work of Indus Music. We propose to celebrate The Beatles’ trip to India which transformed the perception of Indian music in the West. Their historic meeting with Pandit Ravi Shankar remains to this day the key moment in the history of this music in the West.

The festival will include music – all genres, Khyal, Qawwali, Ghazals, Dance, Book Reading, Poetry.
