Poetry And Indian Workshops At Wimbledon Library

Part of an exotic music festival

Two free workshops by the Saudha Society of Poetry and Indian Music take place at Wimbledon Library on February 28 from 5pm and on March 3 from 3pm.

It’s part of a Ghazal, Thumri and Kheyal Festival on the March 5 and 12 at Raynes Park Library and Morden Assembly Hall

Building on last year’s event, Saudha will bring an exotic festival to Merton, performed by leading interpreters of Indian classical music including Chandra Chakraborty, Manorama Prasad, Sanju Sahai, and Rekesh Chauhan.

The workshops will introduce a wide range of Indian classical music. In-depth discussions and demonstrations will be held for attendees to gain more of an insight to the background of Indian classical music.

Merton Council’s cabinet member for community and culture, Councillor Nick Draper said: “It’s great to see Saudha back performing again in Merton this year. We are lucky to live in a borough where different cultures from around the world have come together and this is a great opportunity for our community to come out and celebrate Indian arts and music.”

Director of Saudha, Ahmed Kaysher said: “The performances will reflect Saudha’s own approach and commitment to Indian classical music. Saudha never compromises with the subtlety of the art form we work on and the quality of the artists we work with.”
