South-Asia is a land of rich culture and heritage. For generations people have admired and practiced its pristine tradition and culture, which encompasses classical music and dance, folk music and theatre. Some of the world-famous traditional art forms like the Carnatic music, Hindustani music and dance forms like Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi and Mohiniattam have originated and evolved in the colourful sub-continent i.e. India.

Continuing for the sixth year, Dhruv produced London International Arts Festival presenting 17 concerts and 3 workshops across five venues of London. This year’s festival is between 24th Nov & 1st Dec. Please visit the website to view event updates.

Dhruv Ensemble and choir have presented over thirty concerts in the last 5 years, creatively produced and directed by Jyotsna Srikanth, the artistic Director of Dhruv Arts.

Dhruv presented Vishaka Hari’s two sold-out Carnatic classical concerts woven with story telling across London in March 2016.
