EXPONENTS of two very different yet equally profound classical traditions will come together in Colwyn Bay next month for a celebration of multicultural dance and music.

Classical guitarist Jonathan Richards will be joined by classical Indian dance extraordinaire Kajal Sharma as part of the North Wales Association for Multicultural Integration's annual Interculture festival at Horeb Church Hall on Rhiw Road.

Both practitioners of their art forms since an early age, Richards will present music from Spain and Latin America, as well as a piece composed by former Ryudal Penrhos staff member Tim Harrison.

Complementing the incredible guitarist, Sharma will demonstrate her expertise in Kathak - one of the main genres of ancient Indian classical dance that is believed to have been pioneered by travelling performers to tell mythic tales from Sanskrit text via dance.

The style uses rhythmic foot movements, hand gestures, facial expressions and eye work that have endured for thousands of years in India and beyond, with Sharma performing across the globe across her illustrious career.

Each performer will present a twenty minute solo recital, followed by a interval and two further performances.

To witness the masters of two sublime traditions come together, head to the Horeb Church Hall on Saturday, September 21 at 7pm.

Tickets are available on the door and start at £5.
