The Manganiyar Seduction
Wow. Just wow. Shouting, whistling, thunderous clapping, standing ovation wow.
I have just come out of this incredible concert given by a group of forty Indian musicians from Rajasthan – one of the Sydney Festival highlights this year. It was powerful, moving and absolutely stunning. I think the rest of their shows may be sold out but you should try and get a ticket if you can.
Before the show we had dinner at Sub Solo the Spanish tapas prestaurant/ bar in King Street in the city. I have had a couple of nice meals there in the past. This time we opted for a Sydney Festival fast eat deal – a meal and a glass of wine or beer for $30. A bargain. I hope to eat my way through quite a few of the participating restaurants this month! Here is a pretty dodgy photo of the tapas box that was on offer for the festival deal. Albogandos (Meatballs), patatas bravas, salt cod croquette, chicken chorizo, salad and a slice of bread was in the mixed box. Service was great, food was pretty good. A 7/10 overall from me.
