Concerts at Meherabode and Music Circle will co-present an evening concert by the Bihar Brothers, on their debut US tour (in the first of three California concerts). These younger-generation senior students of the Gundecha Brothers will perform as duet vocalists in the Dhrupad tradition, accompanied by pakhawaj. The Friday night concert (November 14) will be held at Meherabode.
Your humble servant (David Raphael Israel) had the pleasure of attending daily classes under the Gundecha Brothers in company with these bright lads (Sanjeev Jha and Manish Kumar, both originally from Bihar) -- who however (unlike yours truly) stayed on studying and practicing assiduously daily for the past 7 years. The results of their hard work will be on display for your musical delight in this special autumn concert event.
So I'm the guy who announces the concert, and they're the young gentlemen who will wow the intimate audience at Meherabode with a next-generation dhrupad experience.
More info will be posted in this space further along. End of Newsflash!
