“Surbandhan regret to inform you that this event has been postponed until further notice. This is due to governments announcement to cancel all gatherings. We hope to hold the event at a later date after the summer and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.”


Surbandhan presents a unique concert of raag performances with sitarist and vocalist, Ustaad Mehboob Nadeem.

What to expect

Accompanied by narration, the evening will explore the tale of Miyan Tansen and his journey through prahar (time), chakra and seasons through traditional North Indian classical music.

Starting with dawn raagas, travelling through the eight prahars (time measures) – mid-morning, early afternoon, late afternoon, early evening, late evening, night, midnight and dawn – the time scale is prioritised with unique bandishes of Miyan Tansen, including seasonal raagas which are unique to the North Indian musical tradition and to Tansen’s legend.

Many of these ragas and tenets of Indian classical music were set in the Mughal era, a time of vast development in North Indian classical tradition as we know it today.
