An exquisite musical experience

Come and enjoy this exceptional concert of classical Indian music and song performed by accomplished and captivating musicians.

To be held on Saturday 1 April 2017 at 8 pm at the Novotel London West in Hammersmith, this concert has been organised in conjunction with the Second International Ayurveda Congress and the health fair "Ayurveda for Everyone". These all take place on the weekend 1-2 April 2017 at the same venue.

Traditional Indian music, or Gandharva Veda, is not only delightful to listen to, and uplifting to the spirits, but also promotes peace for the individual and society. It is a key treatment modality of Ayurveda, the revered and timeless system of natural medicine from India.

This concert is the second to be offered by the sponsors* of the International Ayurveda Congress, the previous one being in The Netherlands in 2015. Excerpts from that concert, including lead singer Ankita Joshi, can be viewed online.
