Arts Alive will welcome one of the leading contemporary South Asian dance & music companies in the UK, to Hereford this Autumn, when they perform “Roshni” at The Steiner Academy, Much Dewchurch on 13th October at 7.30pm
“Roshni” meaning light, brilliance, enlightenment in Persian, is a beautifully intimate crafting of dance and live music, uplifting the audience on a journey of joy. This soul-stirring performance is a captivating combination of Kathak dance, with live music from a global palette. The sumptuous music from different lands features kaval and violin led by the bold rhythms of Tabla percussion.

“Roshni” celebrates the rich diversity of our global community, by bringing together Sonia’s distinctive style of dance, rooted in the traditions of Kathak from Northern India, reimagined in the context of her lived British experience, with diverse musical genres, from South Asia, Middle East and Europe.
