Traditional Indian classical music
Organizer: Cultural and artistic association Raga Slovenia in cooperation with IRFAZ

Rohan Dasgupta: Sitar, Pandit Sanju Sahai: Tabla

World-renowned Sitar maestro Rohan Dasgupta and Tabla maestro Pandit Sanju Sahai will create a magical meditative atmosphere of the authentic spirit of India at the Cankarjev dom hall.

The performance of Indian artists is a contribution to the call for Peace through Culture - Pax Cultura, a call for constant, consistent and courageous protection of Culture, to save the living tissue of Culture. It contains beneficial energy of the human spirit, connecting us with the world of Beauty and the Supreme Truth. "In art,” wrote Rabindranath Tagore, “our inner essence sends its response to the Supreme Creator who reveals himself to us through the world of endless beauty, which is above the colorless world of facts."

It is about continuation of the thoughts and actions of great creators, messengers of the coming spiritual Culture – Culture of Peace, such as were Roerich and Tagore, Kosovel in our country. Culture uplifts the spirit through creativity, that universal language understood by the heart - the language of Peace.


Culture and Peace—the most sacred goal of humanity! Nicholas Roerich
