Taideyliopiston Sibelius-Akatemia

This concert, taking its title from a song by Kamala Sankaram, takes a look at the intersection of Indian and Western poetry and music.

20th and 21st century Western composers are heard setting Indian poetry, and diaspora Indian composers show how Hindustani and Western classical musical languages can be brought together into the world of song, fusing cultures and perspectives through sound and text.

Mannerheimintie renovation project

Access to the Musiikkitalo from the direction of Mannerheimintie will be difficult. We recommend that you allow enough time for your arrival and use the entrance on the side of Kansalaistori if possible. According to current information, the entrance to Mannerheimintie will also remain in use throughout the renovation, but pedestrian routes can be challenging at times.

We recommend following the official information channels of the renovation project, where you can find the most up-to-date information.
