Raghu Dixit returns to The Southbank 18-19 April 2012

The Raghu Dixit Project’s raucous, inspiring performance at the Alchemy Festival, Southbank Centre last year whet the appetite of existing and a large army of new fans who were given a first taste of the kaleidoscopic music produced by the band.
After subsequently vowing the crowds at Glastonbury, the Project is set to make a triumphant return to light up the dour Southbank Centre on the 18th and 19th April 2012.
As they did last year, Raghu and his band of eclectic, sarong-clad musicians will team up with English folk music band Bellowhead and the Southbank Centre’s resident choreographer Gauri Sharma Tripathi to provide a heady mixture of East and West for the fans.
Ms Tripathi’s participation will see the performance take the form of a musical with the musicians joined by dancers to recreate a story based on Girish Karnad’s play Hayavadana about a man’s search for identity.
The second half of the performance will see the Project join hands with Andy Mellon (trumpet), Brendan Kelly (saxophone) and Pete Flood (drums) from Bellowhead playing tracks from Raghu’s Antaragni days as well as more recent and new material.
