Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Indian flautist and bansuri specialist (Indian bamboo flute) Robin Christian will be performing popular film, bhajans and contemporary as well as light Indian classical music with NAAD, his band featuring Siddharth Singh (guitar) and Shri Gadhvi (tabla and beatboxing). Robin has played and directed almost every form of music, ranging from folk, devotional, soul and classical in both eastern and western fields. Introduced to the flute at 15 in India, where he learnt from flute maestro Pt. Ronu Majumdar, he has performed with leading Bollywood playback singers and directors Kavita Krishnamurti, Alka Yagnik, Mahalaxmi, K.S Chitra and Salim Merchant. No mean list.
Shri Gadhvi’s admiration for musical rhythms sprung at an early age when his inquisition led him to play the Tabla. He has performed with a number of feted fellow musicians, including Anandan Sivamani, Padma Shri Anup Jalota and Harshdeep Kaur and many more, and is admired in his own right as a majestic table man.
Siddharth Singh has learnt guitar from Chintoo Singh in Bombay, and played around the world with internationally acclaimed artists Ustad Ghulam Ali, Roop Kumar, Sadhna Sargam, Alka Yagnik and Kumar Sanu. Some serious pedigree here – you don’t want to miss this.
