A stellar lineup of internationally acclaimed local artists, including a Juno Award nominee, will delight– and likely surprise– the audience at World Music, an event being staged March 2nd, at 5:30 p.m., at Centenary United Church in downtown Hamilton.

Presented by the Raga Music School with support from the Immigrant Culture and Art Association and Centenary, virtuoso sitarist Neeraj Prem has assembled an impressive lineup of performers for this fund-raiser concert on behalf of Centenary United Church.

Among the musicians is jazz saxophonist Sundar Viswanathan of Jaffa Road, a group nominated for World Music Album of the Year for its record Where The Light Gets In.

Joining Sundar will be Neeraj Prem on sitar with Prem Tewari on tabla, classical guitarist Emma Rush, flutist Sara Traficante, Anita Hiripi on violin, Mate Szigeti on flute, and jazz pianist Adrean Farrugia.

The not-to-be-missed evening will feature solo performances by the artists, combos, and a grand fusion finale that combines jazz, classical and Indian music styles.
