Darbar FestivalThe Darbar Festival, a regular fixture on London's event calendar since 2006, takes place at the Southbank Centre, the Barbican and Sadler's Wells, bringing the best of Indian classical music and dance to three London venues over three months. One of the only festivals that offers the two kinds of Indian Classical music - Hindustani from the North, and Carnatic from the South - it was set up in memory of Bhai Gurmit Singh Ji Virdee, an inspirational teacher of the tabla. As well as live concerts and dance there are talks, workshops and 60 minute hatha yoga classes set to classical Indian music.

About Southbank Centre
