This March we are continuing our Baithak* LIVE series - SAA-uk's live streamed concert series, bringing the very best music and dance to your front room.
NAARi / The Woman is a celebration of the spirit, resilience, and fortitude of the feminine through music. Thanks to funding from PRS Foundation through The Open Fund, we have been able to work with the esteemed Leicester-based sitarist Roopa Panesar to create new music and inspire a dedication to the arts amongst a new generation of young women. NAARi was conceptualised during SAA-uk's LEAP 2020 Festival and aims to champion both established female artists and female rising stars of music.
Concert set-list 1) Solo by Aman Kaur Boparai 2) NAARi trio (Prisha Kadakia, Kaavya Kulkarni and Kirtan Kaur Virdee) presenting Raag Kaunsi Kanada 3) Raag Megh by Roopa Panesar 4) NAARi original composition in Raag Chandrakauns by Roopa Panesar
Each music piece has been composed, and arranged by Roopa Panesar exclusively for this Baithak LIVE, performed by four talented young sitarists as well as Roopa, and supported with sound design by Kaviraj Singh.
Yorkshire-based Aman and Kirtan are students training at SAA-uk's Music Academy under the watchful eye of sitarist Jasdeep Singh Degun, whilst Kaavya and Prisha are students of Roopa based in Leicester (UK).
