2024 Thursday evening concert

Jyotsna Srikanth & band

Jyotsna Srikanth’s sliding violin is a mainstay of Europe’s global music circuit. Aged five she heard Carnatic violin for the first time, and tried to imitate the instrument’s action by scraping together two brooms from the kitchen cupboard (“my mother thought I’d gone mad, but I was desperate to hear that sound again...”).


She studied under her mother, Rathna Srikanth, and then took advanced instruction from RR Keshavamurthy, the legendary seven string violinist of Karnataka. She also trained in Western classical music at the Bangalore School of Music. Alongside her demanding musical schedule she also trained as a medical doctor, eventually receiving a postgraduate degree in Pathology.


But music’s allure proved too much, and she chose to pursue it full-time after moving to London with her husband in 2004. She went on to accompany a wide range of top Carnatic musicians as well as teaching and writing for ballet. Aside from this she has recorded for over 200 films and worked in a vast array of fusion settings, including with the Bollywood Brass Band, flamenco-jazz guitarist Eduardo Niebla, and her Indo-Swedish Nordic Raga group.

2024 Saturday Evening Concert

Radhika Das & friends

In 2007 Radhika Das first discovered the practice of Bhakti Yoga, the path of love and devotion. He decided to dedicate more time to absorb himself in the ancient practice of Kirtan and discovered the beauty of mantra. Radhika is committed to helping people, whether it be from an existing yoga or spiritual background or to those with limited or no exposure to the practices. His aim is to help you through accessible and relevant chants to feel more fulfilled, connected and joyful in the mind, body and soul. He has shared in a variety of spaces including major Yoga festivals: Wanderlust, World Yoga Festival and The British Museum. 


"Every human being has a beautiful light within that is just waiting to shine, but our false ego can often block us from unlocking our full potential. As a Bhakti practitioner, I want to serve you to dive deep and explore, unleashing your true vibrancy and joy." Radhika Das also helps to run ‘Kirtan London’, a project which aims to make sacred mantra music accessible to a wider audience, including schools, mental health institutions and outdoor events.
