Pt Vishwa Mohan Bhatt is the first disciple of sitar virtuoso, the late Pandit Ravi Shankar. He has attracted international acclaim and attention for his successful Indianisation of the western Hawaiian guitar with his perfect assimilation of sitar, sarod and veena (traditional Indian instruments) techniques, by giving it an evolutionary design and shape. The Manganiyars, an exclusive community of musicians from Rajasthan in Western India, have perhaps the richest legacy of folk music behind them. With a characteristic vocal technique, full throated singing and an eclectic blend of rare folk instruments, their music is nothing short of magic. Ragas of the Desert is a meeting of the masters inspired by the vast expanses of the Thar desert of Rajasthan, India.

Concert Dates: Saturday, 8 June at the CTICC, Cape Town; Sunday 9 June at The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City.
