Livestream from Mussavir Curated Art Gallery in Dallas, TXClose Encounters of the Classic Kind: Raga, Jazz, and Bollywood
Sept. 15, 2021, 7.00pm Central / 8.00pm Eastern The Sangeet Millennium Ensemble takes you on a sonic tour-de-force, as we journey together through Hindustani classical music from the maharajas’ and nawabs’ courts, winding through classic jazz from smoky listening bars, arriving at, and sometimes convening on, the screens of Bollywood, where the three genres blend in the present.
Host Saadia Khalil, owner of Mussavir Curated Art will begin the journey with a salon-style conversation with the Ensemble musicians. Ready to embark?? The musicians: Amit Kelkar on vocals and harmonium, Amie Maciszewski on sitar, Paul Klemperer on saxophone, Paarth Kuntawala on tabla, and Roshan Parazuli on bansuri (bamboo flute). This event, the final one of Sangeet Millennium's South Asian and Global Performance Series (2021), is supported in part by the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture.
