French Spring Festival 2019 has the pleasure to welcome Shani Diluka for an exceptional piano concert at Bishop’s College. She will be accompanied by Indian musicians Sahana Banerjee at sitar and Prabhu Edouard at tablas. They will perform Cosmos, a project which explores the links between Beethoven and Indian music whose mysticism has historically inspired the Viennese composer.
Shani Diluka, a French acclaimed pianist from Sri Lankan origins, is recognized in the press as an “exceptional” performer blessed with a “winged virtuosity”. She was noticed at the age of six as a talented musician, selected for a specialized program in Monaco and later entered the Paris Conservatoire. Since then, she has played in the most famous venues in the world such as the Teatro La Fenice of Venice, the Sala de Sao Paulo, the Konzerthaus of Vienna…
Through her art, she builds bridges between East and West, between her Sri Lankan origins and her life in Europe. Her performance on July 9th will be one of the highlights of the festival, a crossroad between Europe and Asia.
Tickets are on sale for 1,000 LKR at Alliance Française de Kotte until July 8th.
