‘One’ is the latest work from zerOclassikal, a project to offer radical and experimental approaches to South Asian classical music, presenting the next generation of British South Asian classical talent. Featuring: Mithila Sarma (Veena), Shyla Shanmugalingam (Veena), Pradeepa Sivasanthiran (Veena) and Abhiram Sahathevan (Miruthangam/Kanjira).

Presented with Sage Gateshead.
