This year marks a Special Edition of Shila Mehta’s presence in Belgium. Her coming from Mumbai (India) to teach and perform will this year be celebrated by the accompaniment of the Khan Brothers and their live music, Guinevere Schneider on harp and, last but not least, Deobrat Mishra on sitar. Deobrat Mishra was chosen as Best Young Sitar Player of India at the age of 18. So prepare to be carried away by the myths of classical Indian mythology and by the energy of the Kalbelia, since after her kathak solo in the first part of the performance, Shila Mehta  will meet Maya Sapera  through the language of kathak and kalbelia combined on stage. A unique experience not to be missed!
