Sangeet Mela is Australia’s premiere Indian classical music and dance festival featuring both Hindustani and Carnatic styles. Sangeet Mela 2017 will be held on Saturday 2nd September at Queensland Multicultural Centre (BEMAC). The lineup will be announced at a festival programme launch event at the same venue on Sat May 20, featuring sitar maestro Pt Sugato Nag (Kolkata).

This website will be updated shortly, but in the meantime you can still read about the programme for last year’s fantastic Sangeet Mela…
Sangeet Mela is Australia’s premiere Indian classical music and dance festival featuring both Hindustani and Carnatic styles. Sangeet Mela 2016 will feature renowned sitar maestro Pt Ravi Shankar’s protégée, Shubhendra Rao and pioneer of the Indian cello Saskia Rao-de Haas in a sensational “East Marries West” performance.
“…String magic puts audience in a trance… immersed in a musical journey too exquisite to put down in words… the intoxication of the music kept the audience riveted to their seats…”
