"I started formal training with my grandfather at the age of 5. By then I had already picked up a few varnams like Ninnukori (Mohanam) and Evvari Bodhana (Abhogi). I remember practising the Mohanam varnam in a loop to get it as perfect as possible so I could play it for thatha and surprise him once he came back from his US tour. I’ve always felt very connected with the flute. It was my first obsession. As a kid, I would practise for hours at a time, I would always have my flute with me, even when I went out with my parents."
The Darbar Festival was born as a tribute to celebrate the life and memory of Bhai Gurmit Singh Ji Virdee, an inspirational tabla player who taught thousands of children in the UK over a 30 year period. The Darbar Festival has since grown into an annual festival at the UK's most prestigious venues, bringing together the finest Hindustani, Carnatic, dhrupad and percussion from Indian classical genres, as well as dance.
Darbar Arts Culture Heritage Trust is a registered charity in the UK, established to champion Indian classical arts through high quality live events, digital work and education. Our YouTube channel aims to bring you excerpts from our digital archives from live events, informative videos about Indian classical music as well as insights from artists themselves. Many of you have asked us to upload full concerts. We are committed to doing this but need to raise more funds to cover the costs of producing full length concerts.
