Ever wondered what it might feel like to invisibly sit in the middle of a group of musicians, choosing which instrument to focus on? Explore new forms of musical immersion with Darbar’s 360° videos. This one captures Chakardar, a high-energy tabla quartet who play and recite the bols in tight unison before breaking down into individual improvisations. The ensemble is led by Harkirat Rayatt, the son-in-law of Bhai Gurmit Singh Ji Virdee in whose memory Darbar was founded.

Best experienced with phone and headphones - drag the screen or point your device in different directions and experience how the images and sounds respond to you. Better still with a VR headset. More 360° Indian classical coming soon!

Recorded at Darbar Festival 2018 on 28 Oct 2018, at London’s Barbican Centre:
