A collaboration of vocals and movement of some of his much loved rare and greatest songs.

Thu 25 May, 7.30pm | £12 (£10) | Foyle Studio + Post show Q&A

Imagine a meeting with Kazi Nazrul Islam - the giant of Bengali literature and arts, heralded as Bangladeshi's poet laureate and rebel poet.

The renowned British based vocalist, Lucy Rahman collaborates with acclaimed kathak artist Amina Khayyam to imagine such a meeting. Her haunting vocals set the expectation for the emotionally laden kathak movement to bring to life the topicality of Nazrul's songs and writings to the contemporary period.

The collaboration features Debasish Mukherjee on tabla and Asha McCarthy on cello.
