Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDG), in association with the Calcutta Classical Guitar Society (CCGS), is set to host an international musical event.

The event, titled Mighty Trio on Drums, will be held on December 1, from 6pm at Rabindra Sarobar stadium here.

Percussionist Bickram Ghosh, English actor Greg Ellis and UK percussionist Pete Lockett will be sharing the stage for a musical extravaganza that evening, said the organisers.

Ghosh said that the trio will perform with nearly 200 drums on stage.

Renowned dancer Doris Martel is also expected to perform at the programme.

"This is probably going to be the most important international musical event in Kolkata in 25 years," said CEO of KMDA Vivek Bharadwaj.

"Indian instruments like Nagadha and Tabla will complement the western instruments like acoustic drums and electric drums. This project aims at giving Kolkata a taste of what a big show can be", said Ghosh.
