A Moment of Mishearing
A major highlight of the festival is Amit Chadhuri's A Moment of Mishearing, an audio-visual narrative and a receiver of the Arts award from the Arts Council of England.
The narrative will weave in a full concert performance, about Amit Chaudhuri's music project, which began when he began to mishear the raga in the blues and vice versa, and misheard, one morning as he was practicing classical music, the riff to Eric Clapton's Layla in the raga Todi.
A Moment of Mishearing is written by Amit Chaudhuri, and performed by him and the Amit Chaudhuri band. It is produced by Roger James Elsgood. The radio version was first broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in 2010, and again on Christmas Eve 2011.
Venue: Museum Theatre, Egmore
