The performers are second year music students who are studying gamelan as part of their degree course.
They will be joined by Bhupinder Singh Chaggar, an exceptionally talented tabla player based in Leeds. He is one of the leading disciples of the renowned tabla maestro and Gharanadar of the Benares gharana, Pandit Sharda Sahai Ji. The concert will include a selection of traditional and contemporary Sundanese repertoire, as well as original pieces collectively composed by the group.
Please note: this concert takes place on a FRIDAY and not a Thursday as per the usual Walter Carroll Lunchtime Concerts.
