Having performed extensively all around the UK and parts of Europe from a young
age, Roopa has a wealth of experience and familiarity with a range of diverse
audiences. Whether accompanying dancers or vocalists, recording, collaborating or
going solo, she brings a sincerity and heartfelt approach that comes out through her
sitar in every performance.
Roopa was privileged to give solo performances in Birmingham before Santoor
virtuoso, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma and at the Darbar Festival in London before
Hindustani classical vocal maestro Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar. She has also given
performances in the presence of sitar legend, Ustad Vilayat Khan Sahib and spiritual
leader, Satguru Jagjit Singh - two of her fondest memories. Venues include, The Curve
Theatre, Leicester and in the past at the House of Commons and NEC Birmingham.
She has also recently recorded music for the soundtrack of the critically acclaimed
film, 'West is West' and performed as a guest artist at the John Lennon Tribute Concert
held at the Liverpool Echo Arena in 2010.
Earlier this year, Roopa performed with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
(CBSO) and has featured on the Tsunami Appeal song alongside Shin, Taz and Jassi
One of Roopa's greatest and most moving memories was performing before the
physical presence of spiritual guru, Lord Shri Sai Baba in 2009 whilst on Sadhana
camp with Sri Ajith Popat's group and also on Sai Baba's birthday in 2003 while
accompanying the Late Ghazal singer Jagjit Singh.
