Ragas, Talas and compositions created by Ravi Shankar; rendered by one of the senior-most disciples of Ravi Shankar. Hansa Veena is the only instrument named and launched by Ravi Shankar. He will accompanied on the tabla by Samir Chatterjee.
Samir Chatterjee – Tabla Solo
A frequent accompanist of Ravi Shankar, Samir Chatterjee will offer us a unique experience of the music of tabla – an obvious, yet new creative approach to one of the most popular percussion of the world. He will be accompanied by Shree Kedar Naphade on the harmonium.
Shree Indradeep Ghosh – violin
Groomed by Pt. V. G. Jog and Smt. Sisirkana Dhar Chowdhury as an exponent of the Seni-Maihar gharana, Indradeep has cut a niche for himself in the world of Indian music through his unique blend of the raga and tala to a wholesome experience of music. Indradeep will be accompanied on tabla by Shree Amod Dandawate.
Amod Dandawate has been primarily trained in the Farrukhabad style under the discipleship of Pt. Samir Chatterjee. He was initiated into Tabla by his father Dr. Vasantrao Dandawate at a very young age but started his serious pursuit of the art form only after completing his bachelors degree in Engineering. He received initial guidance and encouragement from Shafaat Khan while performing as an accompanist and then spent some time taking lessons from Ust. Zakir Hussain. Having settled in New Jersey since 1997 he has been receiving advanced training from Pt. Samir Chatterjee.
Concert will start with Pt Ravi Shankar’s compositions presented by talented music students from the community.
Admission: $15.00 for raag-rang members and students. $20.00 for non-members.
