The Art of Living Academy of Performing Arts and Udupa Foundation will present ‘Soul to Soul’, an evening of soulful sitar renditions by the musical prodigy, Niladri Kumar, on June 11, 6.30 pm.

   Set in the tranquil International Center of The Art of Living, Vishalakshi Mantap, Kanakapura Road, the concert will be a perfect blend of classical Indian and fusion music.

     Pandit Vijay Ghate will also enthrall the audience with his tabla performance. Niladri Kumar, under the guidance and numerous years of training from his father and guru Pandit Kartick Kumar, has, after gaining an in depth, profound, and sound understanding of Indian classical music, revolutionised the style of sitar playing in the country. He went on to invent his own instrument, the fiery red electric sitar, which he called ‘Zitar’.

‘Soul to Soul’ is the first concert in the hallmark series of benefit music performances that intend to support the ‘Gift a Smile’ initiative of the Art of Living (AOL).

      As of now, this initiative supports the education of 51,061 underprivileged children across 425 free schools in rural and tribal India and aims to reach out to 60,000 children by the end of 2016. The sitar maestro will play his best and showcase his talent at the event, which will resonate many feelings and sounds. Tickets to the event are
