Following the phenomenal success of the Korean Open Embassy event this summer, November 9th saw the first Open Embassy event organised by Al Douglas (HASH7) and Paul Knowles (IMC) at the Indian Embassy Nehru Centre.
The event supported by the fabulous Premium Beer ‘True Maharaja’ is designed to enhance networking communication between cultures and maximise the full potential of what is possible through Art & Music collaboration. The event has the unique twist of being held at various embassies, honouring the collaboration on an annual basis.
The Invite only event kicked off with a short art exhibition by Indian artist Rama Rajesh who has done her Masters in Fine Art in University of East London showed of her Mural, Acrylic Paintings and sold some paintings at the event followed by the amazing performances from world renowned Talvin Singh, Indian flautist Naveen Kumar and violin virtuoso Anna Phoebe from the UK.
The whole evening was catered by the well-known and admired Asian chef Manju Malhi, who kept the guests fed during the networking and live performances.
One guest said “As usual your events are full of genuinely interesting people. Music was fabulous. I travelled in from the country for this event – well worth it. Thanks Al”
