On the 31st of January 2024, at 3 pm, in Sunder Nursery, Motherland, India’s leading pop culture brand and platform, will host an open-to-all concert by Talvin Singh, OBE, a musician, producer and composer who is best known for his mastery over the tabla and for creating music that brings together western, Indian, folk, classical and electronic traditions. Singh is also a Mercury Prize winner and acclaimed as the godfather of the ‘Asian underground’ sound.
The concert will kickstart the 15th edition of the India Art Fair which begins on the 1st of February 2024. Talvin Singh will journey through the classical and contemporary repertoire of tabla and his unique sonic ambient landscape of tabla tarang, gongs, bells and electro acoustics. “I’m very honoured to have this unique opportunity to perform for the India Art Fair, with a sonic and rhythmic recital in the luscious landscape of the historic Sunder Nursery in Delhi,” he says. “I look forward to seeing you there to share in the divine gift of community and music.”
Motherland is a design-first enterprise and pop culture platform which propels major Indian ventures towards design thinking. Motherland also runs the Motherland Superstore, a specialty retail store, featuring a mix of original designs and specially curated independent labels from India and beyond. This concert exemplifies its vision of pop-culture: genre bending music in one of Delhi’s foremost public spaces in honour of an art fair that celebrates the redoubtable place of India’s versatile visual arts talent in the world.
Motherland, from its inception, has been associated with India Art Fair, and is now collaborating with its 15th edition to design the uniform and look for its ground staff.
“As a pop-culture brand rooted in design, our aim is to create an experience at the intersection of tradition and the future of culture. Sunder Nursery is a perfect example of the potential public spaces have in our country.” says V Sunil, Co-founder of Motherland and POTNTIAL (a soon-to-be-launched global branding and experience design company).
