Welcome to India VII
Time & Location
About the Event
The first Welcome to India event was held in November 2017. Since then, we’ve had the great privilege of welcoming such remarkable artists as :
Sitar pandit Krishna Mohan Bhatt, a disciple of Ravi Shankar whose virtuosity and originality have earned him worldwide fame. Sarod-player Sougata Roy Chowdhury, one of the most talented young classical Hindustani musicians of his generation. Imran Khan, musician and composer, the 9th generation of the lineage of the Sikar Gharana — one of the greatest and most respected musical families of Rajasthan. Nicolas Delaigue, concert performer, trained by great masters of the sitar and a European reference in the teaching of classical Hindustani music. Nihar Mehta, hailing from one of the most prominent families of philosophers and musicians of Ahmedabad and remarkable international tabla player. In 2019, the photographer and author Olivier Remualdo exhibited powerful portraits of Sadhus as part of the event.
On Saturday, November 13th, 2021, Welcome to India celebrates 75 years of India's Independence. Under the patronage of the Indian embassy, Paris, the sweetness of Nicolas Delaigue's sitar will take us on a delightful voyage through time.
