Ansuman will share a selection of artworks and ideas to nourish the soul of the Madras Cafe. With musical performances, poems and provocations he will weave threads between Rabindranath Tagore and Free Jazz, silent meditation and industrial noise, ancient tradition and modern experimentation, the villages of India and the streets of Britain, the gallery and the laboratory.
