Dear Member,

The Indian Association Geneva takes great pleasure in inviting you, your family and friends to the much awaited and most popular celebrations of the year:  DIWALI, GURPURAB, MILAD-UN-NABI and CHRISTMAS.

The evening promises to be very special, offering a mesmerising journey with Meera and Gauri performing “Kathak recital – Benaras Gharana” . We are privileged to have one of the world finest tabla player Pt Sanju Sahai. Sanju is the King of the Benaras Bhaj and well established sitar player Sébastien Lacroix.

Meera and Gauri,  both dancers born in Switzerland, carrying the heritage and lineage of the traditional Kathak style of Benaras Gharana.  Since more than 11 years they are learning  Kathak under the guidance of their Guru Pt Ravi Shankar Mishra . They form an amazing duet, connecting their movements and energies to give the audience the richness of Indian heritage through a traditional recital with their versatile skills.  There couldn’t be better way to celebrate  70 years of friendship between Switzerland and India.
