zerOclassikal: Hari Sivanesan – Veena
It is not often that a musician will just stare at their instrument and ask – what is it? What is it doing to me?
As a young British Asian, this is exactly what Hari Sivanesan has been doing with this ancient instrument of all, known for its beautiful sounds, and one that he has accomplished since a very young age. Here, he unfolds his and his instrument’s existentialism.
the zerOclassikal project, a partnership between zeroculture and Collage Arts, continues to offer a radical approach to south Asian classical music, aiming to provide British born and trained musicians the voice and platform to explore what their identity brings to the ‘ancient’ musical genre . The Project facilitates progressions, experiments and developments of the genre, featuring commissions of new ragas, new interpretations, compositions & improvisations.The Karamel Lounge is proud once again to host the project with a once a month programme featuring artists willing to push the boundaries of south Asian classical music.

Karamel Kids: Gunpowder Gertie’s Storytime
Gunpowder Gertie introduces Gertrude Imogene Stubbs, a notorious female pirate in the Canadian province of British Columbia. In this theatre show, Gertie is brought to life through shimmie-shake-and-silly-yourself yoga, singsongs with an educational twist and pirate-themed stories. Gertie’s Storytime is far from the usual sit-down affair! Fresh from travelling the high seas with her beloved Colonel Mosschops, Gertie looks forward to sharing a tale or two with all you landlubbers.
Local community artist and performer Emily Green will be facilitating the session as the infamous Gunpowder Gertie. Emily has been working with young people and children for a total of ten years. She creates, makes, and performs with children all over the country.
