Indian Summer’s closing party is the place to be on a summery Saturday night, as you join festival artists and special guests in bringing the curtains down on the 2016 edition in style.

Ever since the Beatles heard the sound of Ravi Shankar’s sitar, and the Rolling Stones stumbled upon the master musicians of Morocco, there has been a growing awareness and interconnectedness between the musical traditions of east and west. Vancouver gets a taste of one of the best examples of this musical conversation this summer when the Indian music sensation Rajasthan Josh takes over the Orpheum with a host of friends.

Come and enjoy a delicious samosa lunch. 

Choose from 3 tantalizing options:

  • Lunch comobo: 2 samosas and a soft drink for $6
  • Triple down: 3 samosas for $6
