Tour Information
Hauraki House Theatre

This year two of India’s leading young classical musicians Saptak Sharma and Mayank Raina will be joining New Zealand composer/ songwriter Mike Hogan to perform their own unique blend of music across the country.

The trio, which calls itself PANGAEA to reflect how music joins people across cultures, will be touring in support of their debut, self-titled album.
The group performs a fusion of Indian and Western musical styles. They use songs, Hindustani and European Classical music as well as improvisation, effects and a range of compositional devices to create their own particular sound.

PANGAEA consists of three professional musicians who met whilst guitarist Mike was living in New Delhi in 2019.

Tabla player Saptak is one of the top young classical musicians in India and a recent winner of the All India tabla competition. Sitar and Flute player Mayank, himself one of only two musicians in India to ever achieve an A grading with the prestigious All India Radio in two instruments simultaneously. Guitarist and singer Mike has been working as a musician in NZ and abroad for the last 20 years.

PANGAEA perform original songs as well as unique covers of other artists and can range from fast improvised Ragas to quoting J.S. Bach in the middle of a contemporary song.

PANGAEA will be undertaking this second NZ tour in February/March 2020 and performing 25 shows across the country, including the Summer Sounds Festival and the Dunedin Fringe Festival.

The group’s debut album “PANGAEA” is to be made available to the public on all steaming platforms on the 20th February 2020.
