In June 1992, the South Bank Centre presented ‘Nisha Manjari – Evening of Flowers’. The evening featured Baluji Shrivastav on sitar, performing rarely heard ‘raags’ (an acoustic method of colouring the mind of the listener with emotion; ‘raags’ also have particular note and modal structures). This flyer provides details of the event which was held on 26 June 1992 at the Purcell Room, and features an image of Baluji playing the sitar. Baluji was accompanied by Anindo Chatterjee on tabla.
