Lakha Khan, Boom Shankar Project, and Aditya Narayan Collaborative Play for Friends of Music on May 23

May 21, 04:47pm

Teamwork Arts presents another edition of Friends of Music featuring a stellar line-up of musicians at the Lodi Garden Restaurant this Friday on May 23.

The Lodi Garden Restaurant is going to find itself to be a delectable spot to spend the evening on May 23 with Teamwork Arts presenting another edition of the Friends of Music gig featuring performances by a fine line-up of musicians ensuring this Friday evening’s collective as a sure one on anyone’s itinerary. FOM will lead its exploration into the world of traditional music through folk, Sufi, poetry, the magic of Middle east, African and Indian classical influences this weekend, showcasing musical performances by an eclectic gathering of musicians including Delhi’s world music band the Boom Shankar Project; fusion and world music outfit, the Aditya Narayan Collaborative; and internationally renowned sarangi player and vocalist, Lakha Khan, a generational virtuoso musician of Rajasthani folk and Sufi music.

There are plenty of good reasons why this line up works for almost anyone up for a gig; with the soulful musical influences of Bhatiali, Baul and Persia, Indian folk, rock, jazz, and blues flowing through the Boom Shankar Project, and an act that produces music with the idea of incorporating new sounds and the multiple vocal styles of Aditya Narayan, along with the pure bred sarangi skills of one of the last remaining Manganiyars Lakha Khan, the show has already been stolen.
