Rare chance to hear authentic Indian Raags and amazing Tabla rhythms being performed in a close setting..

This will be a special “Baithak” event which translates to a "sit-down gathering." In this Classical Music tradition, a baithak means intimate musical performance held in a inintiate setting, where musicians perform in close proximity to the audience.

The performance ranges from deeply meditative to improvised dynamic explorations of rhythm and melody.
Jason and Dennis have spend their lives training and performing Indian classical music.
Every performance is unique and the duo have a special stage chesmtry not to be missed.

Indian Raags are ancient musical formulas that have their roots in Naad Yoga ( Yoga of sound ). Raags developed in ancient temples with the intent to go deeper into the self through the Rasas (emotions), meditation and trance.
The music is Raags are set the hypnotic rhythmic cycles played on the amazing Tabla.

The Raags for this concert will be played on the evocative Bansuri ( low pitched bamboo flute ) by Jason Kalidas and dynamic rhythms on Tabla by Dennis Kucherov
