Event Description:

After an overwhelming response at his Sri Lanka debut a year ago, Aditya Gandhi is back in
Colombo with a full length solo concert at the Russian Center. This concert is a display of the
variety of cultures we interact with today, presenting music from Latin American countries,
Africa, Scotland and France to name a few.

Titled ‘Solidarity with Cuba and Venezuela’ , the concert will focus on the Cuban work El
Decameron Negro (The Black Warrior) by Leo Brouwer and Venezuelan Waltzes by Antonio
Lauro. He will also perform some audience favorites from his last visit to Sri Lanka such as Out
of Africa and Sueno en la Floresta. Like all his concerts, the music is presented in a very
accessible manner, with narratives (and humor) to accompany the musical storytelling.

About the Artist:

“We watched as his hands slid along the fret board, like ocean waves on a calm sunny day. The
music was hauntingly beautiful, and the occasional thump on the guitar made Indian guitarist
Aditya Gandhi’s performance, a thriller to watch”
-The Sunday Times

Aditya Gandhi is a graduate of Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and the Chicago College of
Performing Arts under world renowned guitarist Denis Azabagic. He has performed across India,
Sri Lanka, Scotland and the United States. Most recently, he is touring across India with a series
of solo concerts. He is revisiting Sri Lanka after being a part of GuitarFest 2017 last year, that
saw him performing 7 concerts in 6 cities.

Aditya's goal is to shake up the preconceived notions that modern audiences have about ‘art
music’. He is a firm believer in the universality of music, and makes his concerts as accessible
and reflective of contemporary culture as possible.
