An Afternoon of Contemplative Classical Indian Music
Map to McKim Hall
This is a unique opportunity to experience the ancient raga music of India in an intimate setting with Srinivas Reddy on sitar and Mayuresh Abhyankar on tabla drums. In addition to performing an afternoon of ragas, the artists will also explore the contemplative underpinnings of the tradition as it has been practiced over generations.
Mayuresh has been a student of tabla for over 20 years. He started his training with Shri Y.G. Parakhi in Pune, India. He then continued “Delhi Gharana” training under the guidance of Pandit Pandurang Mukhade. Mayuresh has a “Sangeet Visharad” degree (equivalent to B.A.) in tabla. After moving to the US, he has performed at numerous venues and regularly accompanied leading artists. Mayuresh has a Ph.D. in Microbiology and currently is a faculty member in the Division of Infectious Diseases.
