September 28th Concert Partho Sarothy & Paul Livingstone: Sarod & Sitar Duet
We are delighted to announce the first Indian classical concert in this year's Auspicious Autumn season at Meherabode.
Returning to the West Coast (after their first US tour in 2008) will be Partho Sarothy and Paul Livingstone -- musicians respectively from Kolkata and Los Angeles, both of them fellow disciples of the late, legendary musical genius Pandit Ravi Shankar. On tabla will be the noted Kolkata/Los Angeles artist Shashanka Bakshi.
Partho and Paul will regale us with the balanced blend of deep sarod and sweet sitar, one of the finest blends in Indian music.
