An evening of world poetry and classical music (supported by Tower Hamlets Council) at Brady Arts Centre which were set harmoniously to propagate the message of love through transcendental music and hunting poetry.
This world-class event, first of its kind, endeavored to establish the subtle but strong bond between lyrical poetry and classical music. The central concept was to hybridize the wide spectrum of music and literature around the globe in order to cross cultural barriers and promote deep humanism that lies in the content of music and poetry.
Chandra Chakraborty, one of the finest Indian Classical vocalists was accompanied by Kamalbir Nandra (violin), troubadour vocalist Erik Schelander, Luthfur Rahman (flute), Himanish Goswami (tabla), Sami Kergupta (guitar), Amal Podder (mandira), poet T M Ahmed Kaysher and other musicians.
