Spirit of Banaras Tour 2008

5 November 2008

The Carleton community is invited to a special classical Indian concert at 8:00pm in Sayles-Hill Great Space, performed by Ravindra Goswami (sitar) and Ramchandra Pandit (tabla) from the musically rich city of Banaras (Varanasi), India. Goswami plays pure, traditional raga and is a disciple of the late Smt. Amiya Devi, and also studied the ancient Dhrupad style with Ramakant Mishra. Pandit is a long-time professional performer of classical, semi-classical, folk, and popular music. He is a life-long disciple of Pandit Sharda Sahai, and is a colorful performer and experienced educator who specializes in demonstrating and explaining Indian music to Western audiences. Ramuji is one of Banaras’s foremost tabla teachers. Indian chai (that’s tea) and wai (that’s everything that goes with it) will be served!
