Join us for a captivating evening of raga with one of the world’s foremost exponents of the sarod (North Indian lute). A distinguished disciple of Ali Akbar Khan, Rajeev Taranath’s performances masterfully combine the depth and rigor of the tradition of Hindustani classical music with inspired imagination and emotional intensity. Hailed as a prodigy in Hindustani music, he was trained by his father Pandit Taranath and other eminent musicians, and was a concert and radio artist before age 20. Rajeev has toured extensively throughout the world. He has also composed music for several nationally and internationally honored Indian films, and is the recipient of the Indian Government’s highest award in the arts, the Sangeet Natak Academi Award. For this concert, he will be joined by Udayraj Karpur on tabla.

 

Presented in collaboration with the World Music Institute
