Ford Collier performs music inspired by Indian ragas with a contemporary twist. Dance to the catchy tabla drumming rhythms, join in with a simple Sa Re Ga melody and relax with a soundscape of gongs, chimes, Shruti box and the kanjira. Why not stay at Cutlery Works and visit MaBa for some delicious Indian home-cooking from Gujarat?
With songs, dancing, listening as well as bubbles, percussion, props and informal introductions, this is a fun and informal gig for adults and their 0-5 year-old children.
