GemArts is delighted to launch Masala Festival 2023 with Sonia Sabri Company. Roshni, from the Persian word meaning light or brilliance, is a beautifully intimate crafting of dance and live music, transporting and uplifting the audience on a journey of joy. This soul-stirring performance is a captivating combination of Kathak dance, with live music from a global palette of styles. The sumptuous music from different lands features kaval and violin led by the bold rhythms of tabla percussion. 
Roshni brings together Sonia’s distinctive style of dance, rooted in the traditions of Kathak from Northern India, yet reimagined in the context of her lived British experience, with diverse musical genres and artists, ranging from South Asia, Middle East and Europe and celebrates the rich diversity of our global community.
