I'm pleased to announce that I will be performing with two of my good friends and musicians who I respect and inspire me on June 25 in Putney, VT: Jake Charkey, one of the only people performing Hindustani music on the cello, and Mir Naqibul Islam, the hardest working tabla player in NY. This is a special concert being presented as a collaboration between NextStage Arts and Brooklyn Raga Massive. Jake, Mir and I will present a one-hour program of evening ragas played on cello, Indian slide guitar and tabla. We will present music in the traditional, north Indian style that we have learned from our respective gurus for over a decade. Jake is a disciple of Vidushi N Rajam and Mir is a representative of the Farukhabad gharana, having learned from Pt. Ashoke Paul.
The performance will be followed by a concert of Carnatic jazz fusion by the Arun Ramanurthy Trio.
