The World List of Intangibles of Tourist Attraction
The Festival is dedicated to Bhai Gurmit Singh Ji Virdee (1937-2005), an inspirational teacher of the tabla in whose memory the Darbar Festival was first established in 2006. Darbar was everything a classical festival should be: a finely balanced blend of traditional forms and modern fusions, that jumped at the chance to both address its social history and engage with its cultural subject matter as a living tradition.
