Summer Solstice Festival 2018


SAA-uk and Leeds College of Music join forces to bring you recitals, talks and world class music on this 2018 Summer Solstice. International artists like Dr. Jayanthi Kumaresh and Suhail Khan, will share the stage with rising stars Jasdeep Singh Degun and Gurdain Singh Rayatt, showcasing some of the best Indian classical music.

Over the two days of the Festival you will have the opportunity to listen to a host of early instruments, like veena, sarangi, ghatam and mridangam, along with popular sitar and tabla. The relaxed Lunchtime Recitals will be followed by two evening concerts, exploring conflicting traditions in a magical double bill performance.

The Indian Music Appreciation pre-show talks will prepare you to the evening concerts, giving you the chance to truly appreciate the intricacy of India’s classical music tradition.

Delicious vegetarian Indian food will be on sale at the evening concerts on both days.
