Mrigya in Concert /

Mrigya is a world music band from New Delhi. A rich blend of classical Hindustani, Qawwali, Blues & Jazz lends their music a unique texture woven by several cultures. Mrigya burst onto the international scene 11 years ago when they won the Herald Angel award for Best Music Act at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. They returned to the festival the following year, and won the Tap Water Award for music that promotes communal harmony. Since then, they have toured India and the world to much acclaim.

At the Indian Summer Festival, Mrigya returns to their roots by presenting an evening of Hindustani and Sufi music.

The first half of the evening will be a Sufi/Qawwali duet by Gulaam Qadar and Sukriti Sen, accompanied by Gyan Singh on the Tabla. Qawwali is a form of devotional singing rooted in the mystical tradition of the Sufis, for whom music is a powerful transformatory experience. Gulaam Qadar is one of the most sought after Qawwali singers, from the  legendary Hapur Gharana. His ancestors were for centuries the court musicians to the Mughal emperors.Following an intermission, there will be a Hindustani violin recital by Sharat Chandra Srivastava, the foremost disciple of his illustrious grandfather Sri Joi Srivastava of the Senia Gharana (the same acclaimed group to which the likes of Ali Akbar Khan and Ravi Shankar belong).

A concert for those who believe that music transcends all borders.

Mrigya is presented in collaboration with the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, where Mrigya takes the stage over the weekend July 14-15.
