Indian Classical Music Appreciation Listening Session #007 Music Festivals of India
January 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Winter time in the US is music festival time in India! Festival season provides the listener with a chance to hear the best Indian Classical Musicians of today perform in front of knowledgeable and excited audiences. Some of these festivals run for 2 weeks while others feature performances that last until 6:00 AM. Fortunately for those of us located halfway around the globe, there are recordings of some of these exquisite performances.
Shall we share in some of this excitement?
This session will feature performances from the Tansen Samaroh in Gwalior, the Swara Samrat Festival in Kolkata, Saptak in Ahmedebad and last year’s performances from the Dover Lane Music Conference in Kolkata.
As with each of these listening sessions, participants will listen to performances or recordings made by some of the most well known Hindustani musicians in the world. All recordings will be played through a high quality sound system. In addition, stories and information will be shared about the performers, the ragas, the instruments, Hindustani music theory, and the festivals, venues, and recording studios in which these performances occurred.
If you’ve got a recording that you’d like to share, that’s awesome! Please contact the facilitator ahead of time to ensure that you will have the time and space to play your offering.
