Drive East is a classical Indian dance and music festival running from Thurs., August 15 through Sun., August 18 at Z Below in San Francisco, featuring artists from around the world and within the Bay Area. From bharatanatyam to ghazals, kathak to carnatic, Drive East is a one-of-a-kind immersive experience into the world of Indian classical arts and an event The New York Times hails as "an extraordinary feat."

Come and immerse yourself in the music and dance traditions of India and enjoy their various permutations from artists across the globe. A festival like no other, Drive East brings you the legacy of a modern voice within an ancient form.

Drive East highlights include opening night performance of Hidayat Khan, a 7th generation sitar player - hailing from one of the most treasured lineages of Hindustani classical music, and a performance by Bijayini Satpathy from Delhi, a sought after performer, choreographer in Odissi, a north Indian classical dance form. Closing night brings dancer and film actress Divyaa Unni with the premiere of A Thousand Names for the Goddess, her take on the struggles of Indian women in the diaspora.

Other Drive East performances include: Unfiltered by Nadhi Thekkek (San Francisco), Rasika Kumar (San Jose), and Sahasra Sambamoorthi (NYC) exploring the #metoo movement through bharatanatyam performance with live music; Still I Rise, a bharatanatyam dance theatre performance by Vidhya Subramanian (Cupertino); a carnatic music concert by Asha Ramesh (Bay Area); a kathak duet by Nirupama and Rajendra (Bangalore); Roopa in Flux, a carnatic inspired concert featuring Roopa Mahadevan (NYC); a kathak concert by Barkha Patel (NYC); a Hindustani music concert by Jayanti Sahasrabudde (Bay Area), and an afternoon youth concert by Chhandam Youth Group (Bay Area).
