A concert for conservation
Sanctuary at The Quarter presents an evening of dance and live music, featuring ‘Flamenco Kathaa’ by Aditi Bhagwat and Kunal Om, and the Indo-Western crossover ensemble, the Prem Joshua band. The unique event brings together world music, dance, photography, food and drink and is brought to you by the Urvi Ashok Piramal Foundation.
The evening begins with the Sanctuary Photography Awards (7:00pm - 7:30pm) and continues with the Flamenco Kathaa, followed by Prem Joshua & Band.
Kunal Om began his journey with Flamenco five years ago in Spain and is described as being currently the only professional male Flamenco artist from India. He unites the two cultures through his experiments with Indian music like Sufi, Rajasthani Folk and Kathak dance. Aditi Bhagwat, a Kathak and Lavani exponent, is known for her collaborations with Jazz and world music. Aditi received the Onebeat fellowship which was an initiative of the US State Department of Educational and Cultural Affairs in 2012. She collaborated as a foot percussionist with 30 artists from various parts of the world while on this fellowship program.
Flamenco Kathaa is a Flamenco and Kathak collaboration tracing the common cultural roots and similarities of the two dance forms. The project also features Aditya Kudtarkar on Cajon, Shruti Bhave on Violin and Deepak Verma on Flamenco Guitar.
Prem Joshua and his international band are pioneers of an eclectic sound that draws its essence from the depth of India’s musical traditions as well as the innovation of contemporary Western music. The band combines disparate musical styles such as electronica, jazz and funk into an original and virtuoso sound – one that is intricately detailed by a masterful blend of Indian and western instruments.
