Sorry, this event’s been and gone
|Sat 4 Aug ’12, 7:15pm–9:30pm||
Where: Blockhouse Bay Boat Club 3BC, 91 Endeavour St, Auckland
Restrictions: All Ages
Classical ragas, folk and devotional music by Professor SD Madhur, and well as Tabla demonstrations and performance by the well known Basant Madhur and young Master artiste Akhilesh Madhur.
This family of extraordinary musicians have put together this concert to inspire and inform us a little about the inside of this amazingly intricate music, how it comes together and what it takes. A less formal but equally uplifting experience for attendees
