April 24 Indian Musics

India has a centuries long tradition of classical music. Sometimes we have a chance to hear here a little, and to maybe get a subliminal dose of the spiritual underpinnings. Tonight is an opportunity. Kalakendra brings musicians from India and tonight they bring Pandit Joydeep Ghosh on surshringar, Pandit Ramesh Mishra on sarangi and Pandit Subhen Chatterjee on tabla. Pandit is an honorific bestowed on the most inspired senior performers of Indian music, many started in early childhood and studied with renowned masters. How interesting that this same evening, Bhangra DJ's Anjali and the Incredible Kid close a long running night at the Fez and Indian fusion house musicians play at Yoga Shala. Presented by Kalakendra at the First Congregational Church, 1126 SW Park Avenue. 7:30PM $20, free for members.
