In the 70th anniversary year of Partition, we invite artists with Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi heritage to bring their own medicine music to The Wonder Inn. From the traditional and the devotional, to fusions of styles and experimental explorations through collaboration and improvisation, we present the old and the modern, the acoustic and the electronic. Through voice, skin, string and silicon, each artist has their own unique way of raising the vibration, lifting the heart with their music and attempting to untangle the knots of the human condition through their lyrics.
We'll celebrate some of the rich and diverse musical flavours and influences that the subcontinent offers the wider human family, and how that can morph and evolve via the melting pot of contemporary UK music and culture.
*** Madeeha Mubarak is also a chef specialising in authentic Punjabi food which will be available to buy from early evening onwards at the event.***
