A music event to celebrate Indian culture will take place in Chesham next month.

Being held at the town’s Elgiva Theatre on April 27, ‘Dhun’ will be the second time the cultural performance will showcase the brilliant things about Bollywood following a very successful show last February.

It is anticipated that around 300 people will attend along with some dignitaries from the local community.

The event night has been created by Amerindis, an Amersham-based voluntary community organisation comprising individuals of Indian heritage residing in Buckinghamshire.

Their aim is to celebrate and promote the rich tapestry of Indian culture and values, fostering a sense of unity and cultural understanding within the diverse landscape of the UK

Organiser, Jai Vardhan Hada, told the Free Press: “While Amerindis has long hosted popular cultural events, this event promises to be a magnificent display of musical prowess, featuring classical, folk, and contemporary Indian music performances by talented artists from our community and beyond.”

He also stated that whole Amerindis team is ‘very excited about this event’ to shate India’s contribution to the music world.

The classical Indian dance (Kathak) will kick off the performance, which will be followed by a duet of Santoor and Tabla (traditional Indian musical instruments).

A full orchestra performing Bollywood songs will cap off the occasion.

This year, KATHAK will be performed by Priya Kushwaha and Abhinav shankar Mishra and team.

In instrument duet, Jnanesh Kamat will perform on Tabla and Shreerag Hari will be on Santoor.

Ashvini Kane, Rajan Shegunshi, Mandar Sane, Manas Mallick and Pearl Chowksi are the supremely talented vocalist for the Bollywood orchestra.
