Oorga - as pickles are affectionately called in the south of India, accompany every meal. Vegetables brinned in aromatic spices and oils, made from grandmother's recipes are the pride of every household. And the best oorga is one made over time, made with love and attention, where the flavour of each individual ingredient blends together to create something special.

Oorga, a concert of classical music with contemporary treatment is a unique one. Three seasoned musicians who have spent many years collaborating and making music together - Ananth, Bindhumalini and Vedanth - come together to recreate and reimagine an eclectic blend of Sufi music, Folk and Blues rock, in contemporary styles. They each bring their distinctive style as musicians to the music they create together, making this blend a very unique and special one.
