The Event

With: Berthine van Schoor (cello), Vevek Ram (sitar), Rabin Ram (sarod), Arindam Mukhopadhyay (vocal), Madhav Parshotam (tabla).
“East meets West” is the perfect example of how different cultures can work and blend together in perfect harmony, each inspiring the other in the creation of something unique and beautiful. Music is the universal language through which we transcend all boundaries. Inspired by the music of Ravi Shankar and Yehudi Menuhin, who recorded three albums in the 1960’s, these musicians decided to cross the cultural divide and make music together. The combination of sitar, sarod, cello and tabla lends itself to an exceptionally beautiful blend of Indian traditional and western instruments, with the vocals adding yet another dimension. The style and mood of the music ranges from meditative, sweet and delicate to exuberant and ecstatic. “East meets West” is an uplifting experience, transporting the listener into the magical worlds of mysticism.
Pieces include Raga Piloo, Rajdhani Express, Bhavesh, Jugalbandi, Kafi and Cream. The Raga for each piece will be announced and explained by Vevek Ram.
