Lopa Kothari introduces a special concert recorded in Chennai by South Indian singer Aruna Sairam, who is this year's World Routes Academy mentor.

The whole of this programme is devoted to the concert, a chance to hear full-length Indian ragas sung by one of India's top performers. She is accompanied by violinist H.N. Bhaskar, J. Vaidyanathan playing the mridangham drum, Shri Kartik on the ghatam, the clay pot and Shreemati Girija on tanpura. In the World Routes Academy scheme, Aruna Sairam is mentoring the young UK veena player Hari Sivanesan, a year-long project that culminates in a joint late-night BBC Promenade Concert in July.
