One of the most prominent art organisations in the UK, Kalakar Arts have been producing a series of live musicals titled “Tale of Tawaifs”, based on the famous female Indian courtesan’s lives and music, for the last 2 years.
Each musical is presented with impeccable music, dance, spoken words and acting and each has attracted a full house audience, wherever they have performed.
After the resounding success in Leeds on 24th May, Kalakar will be presenting the last two concerts of the series “Umrao Jaan”, a mystic tale of a Tawaif (Courtesan) in Birmingham and Manchester.
