INDIKA: Kids Concert on Thursday 25th October 2018
Kids Concert: U. Rajesh, & Abhimanyu & Vidha Lal
Part of Indika 2018
Thursday 25th October, 11-2pm
Capstone Theatre, Liverpool
New to Indika 2018, our kids concerts are a perfect way to introduce the younger members of your family to Indian classical music and dance. This double bill show sees 45 minutes of music from the extraordinary mandolin artiste U. Rajesh. There will then be a break where you can grab some delicious food from Mayur Fine Indian Dining, then it's back into the theatre for a Kathak performance from two of the greatest dancers on the Indian classical scene, Abhimanyu & Vidha Lal. Shows are a little bit more relaxed than your average concert setting, but they still feature the very best artists - making them perfect for the whole family!
FIRST HALF (11-12pm):
Experience a rare treat in Indian music, the Mandolin, as it is played to perfection by one of the most impressive musicians in the world. U. Rajesh is one of the most sought after classical artistes currently in India, having played with nearly all of the country’s top musical stars and recorded dozens of albums. The mandolin virtuoso is joined by master percussionists Kousic Sen (on tabla) and RN Prakash (on mridangam), known across the globe for their unique rhythms.
SECOND HALF (1-2pm):
Abhimanyu and Vidha Lal are a husband and wife Kathak duo. They have been trained in the Jaipur style and have toured across the world with their exuberant dance style, bringing Kathak to the masses. They have received praise from the media and connoisseurs of the arts, as well as from audiences from across the globe.
Delicious food from Mayur Fine Indian Dining will be available to purchase in the venue foyer between the performances (12-1pm)
