Zero Classikal: Basement Sessions
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, and improvisations.
