South Indian Violin Duo

Lopa Kothari presents highlights from the 2012 Darbar Festival of Indian classical music. With South Indian violin duo the Mysore Brothers and Joydeep Ghosh.

Lopa Kothari introduces highlights from the Darbar Festival of Indian classical music, taking place this weekend at the Purcell Room in London. The celebrated South Indian violin duo the Mysore Brothers make a rare UK visit, and Joydeep Ghosh plays the seldom-heard lute-like instrument, the sursingar.

The Darbar Festival has established itself as the UK's premier festival of Indian classical music, a four-day event with concerts in the mornings and afternoons as well as in the evenings, allowing for perfomances of ragas associated with specific times of the day. The festival has always championed the lesser-known music of South India, as well as the more familiar Hindustani music. This is the first of three programmes devoted to this year's Festival.
