Darbar Festival presents the very best classical music to our audiences through amazing concerts from the finest musicians from Indian classical music and Carnatic music. In this performance, we present Nina Burmi, one of the UK's leading exponents of the 'Kirana' Gharana Style of Hindustani classical vocal. Naturally gifted with a melodious and resonant voice, which extends uniquely across a range of three octaves, Nina effortlessly captures the exquisite yet vibrant and dynamic emotions of Hindustani classical music.
Nina is best known for her youthful flair with mature virtuosity - whether khayal, thumri or bhajan. Her training began at an early age with Shree Surjit Singh Raja. Her style, classism, and maturity was developed under the tutelage from distinguished maestro Ustad Dilshad Khan and Begum Parveen Sultana.
Accompanying NIna in this amazing performance, is the world famous Pandit Ramesh Mishra on Sarangi and Sanju Sahai on tabla. This recording was made during the Darbar Festival 2006.
Darbar Festival was established in 2006 and takes place annually in London. It gives audiences the opportunity to explore some of the best improvised classical music in the world.
