Shreya Devnath and Praveen Sparsh bring you songs of traditional Indian Music, a journey through classical and folk cultures. Songs of freedom, love, joy and self belief presented in a seamless blend of composed and improvised music. The pieces will draw from the diverse cultural background that India is blessed with, exploring the lyrical and musical ideas of composers from across the country, each of whom had their own journey, but found ultimately, liberation through their music and faith.

Shreya and Praveen will explore these pieces with different emotional and musical intensities, interpreting them through the violin, vocals, multi-percussion and spoken word. As a primarily instrumental concert, the musicality of these compositions will be brought forth through the simple and pure magic of melody, rhythm and aesthetics.
