One of India’s most respected classical flautists, Hariprasad Chaurasia, will be back to Dubai next week for a performance to celebrate world music. To be held at Ductac in Mall of the Emirates, the concert on May 17, called Sangam (confluence, in Hindi), will feature Chaurasia on the flute, Gwyneth Wentink from Holland on the harp, percussionists Gino Banks, son of jazz composer Louis Banks, on the drums and Subhankar Banerjee on the tabla.

Chaurasia, 74, has performed in the UAE a number of times including once at a concert with Ian Anderson of British rock band Jethro Tull.

“Sangam is a journey of diverse musical forms, each performed by maestros with their unique dynamics and rhythm,” said organiser Vinod Raghavan of Tambourine Live. Tickets, Dh150, Dh200, Dh250 for stalls and Dh500 (VIP), available at the Ductac box office. Call 04-3414777.
