“Systrarna Lalitha och Nandini är den fjärde generationen av musiker i sin släkt. Från tre års ålder har de ambitiösa violinisterna haft målet att bli det, som skulle ta oss andra flera decennier av erfarenhet att komma i närheten av.
De bär facklan för en musiktradition inlindad i mystik och livligt berättande, ofta närmare våra drömmar än vår omedelbara omgivning. Musiken framförs av systrarna som en gåva till det gudomliga vars syfte är att stilla själen.
Ikväll utforskar vi deras äventyr både bakom och framför musiken!”
