An all-blind orchestra from India will perform in Leicester and London later this month. The band Black, playing contemporary and classical Hindi music as well as Bollywood hit songs from different eras, will perform at the De Montfort Hall in Leicester on September 24 and 26 and at the Brent Town Hall here on September 25.
According to the organisers, the quality of songs and music is equal to anything that has ever been done by an Indian orchestra in the UK despite the fact that all 13 members of the group, from percussionists to two lead singers are blind.
One of the talented members of the band is flutist Kiran Vinkar who has worked at high profile stage shows. He has also played flute as background music for Bollywood film Sarkar Raj. There will also be a surprise appearance from a Bollywood star, the organisers said.
