The zerOclassikal project, a partnership between zeroculture and Collage Arts continues to offer a new 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.

Basement Sessions Double Bill: Wednesday 29th March
Arani & Akash


Two talented British musicians present a double bill of exciting classical music on two stringed instruments from the North and South – Veena and Sitar.

Akash Parekh is a part of the next generation of exciting British-born sitar players. Having only started learning when he was 18 he has fast progressed into an upcoming musician of the current generation. Based in Leicester, his musical upbringing was initially in western classical and contemporary western music which adds to his innovative playing style.

Arani Sivapathasundaram is a prolific Veena player and emerging artist within London. Her outreach work in spreading awareness of the classical arts has led her to develop her own style to this instrument which enables an audience to delve deeper into the intricacies of the Veena.
