AFRIKA MEETS INDIA

Afrika meets India is pioneering a convergence of classical Indian raga melody, traditional Zimbabwean mbira song, and a grooving blend of Indian and African rhythm.

With Afrika Meets India, centuries of celebrated musical traditions dance together - and perhaps return to their common origins - as the ragas of India find common ground with African chants, rhythms and melodies.

Grounded by tradition but guided by the spirit of spontaneous improvisation, no two Afrika Meets India concerts are alike.
