Renowned Indian poet & writer Javed Akhtar has translated a selection of Tagore’s songs into Hindi, allowing the great Bengali polymath’s work to be shared with a wider audience. Javed will deliver readings of the poems and talk about the process of translating them.
He is joined by prominent artist and cultural commentator Sangeeta Datta, who will perform songs from the collection, accompanied by a group of young musicians including London-based composer and Sarod maestro Soumik Datta, a fast-rising star who brings a contemporary touch to the arrangements.
