Worlds Within Worlds are proud to bring you a rare Dhrupad vocal performance by Branan Silvius, accompanied by Shen Flindell on Pakhawaj.

Branan Silvius is a vocalist who specialises Dhrupad - the oldest of the major vocal styles in Indian classical music. He has been a disciple of the Gundecha Brothers since 2002, and believes in this form for its capacity to reveal universal musical principles and expand the consciousness of both musician and listener.

Branan has performed in Australia, India, Europe and the USA and received an Ian Potter Cultural Trust grant in 2012 to study at the Dhrupad Sansthan. He currently lives in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Since being initiated into the Benares Gharana of tabla by one of the great old masters of the style in 1994, Shen Flindell has grown to become one of Australia's leading tabla players.

He is the accompanist of choice for Indian classical artists visiting Brisbane, having played with Pt Shantanu Bhattacharyya (vocal), Pt Ritwik Sanyal (Dhrupad vocal), Pt Kushal Das (sitar), Pt Santosh Mishra, Sri Sangeet Mishra (sarangi), Pt Rajan Kulkarni (sarod), Pt Sukhdev Mishra (violin), Smt Prerana Deshpande (Kathak), and many more.
Since the passing of his guru-ji in 2004, Shen has received training from a wide range of tabla masters including Pt Pooran Maharaj, Pt Govinda Chakraborty, Pt Nayan Ghosh, Pt Suresh Talwalkar and Sri Hari Om Hari (in light classical styles). In recent years Shen has taken up pakhawaj as a second instrument, with some guidance from Japanese pakhawaji Sri Tetsuya Kaneko.

We hope that you will join us for this very special concert.

This performance has been made possible thanks to the support of 107 Projects and City Of Sydney.
