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 third year, Dhruv produced London International Arts Festival presenting 17 concerts and 3 workshops across 4 London venues. This year’s festival is between 4th & 8th November. Please visit the website to view event updates.

Dhruv Ensemble and choir have presented over twenty concerts in the last 2 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 2014 and Prince Rama Varma’s Carnatic music concert at the Southbank Centre in April 2014.

Our next upcoming event is Carnatic Strings at the Southbank Centre. For tickets click HERE
