Using a classical violin, coupled with a modern "hip hop" style performer, we'll embrace classical and modern Indian history through her extraordinarily talented performance. 

    ABOUT THE FEATURED PERFORMER: Nistha Raj transports to international audiences a rare, evocative and soothing sound of classical North Indian (Hindustani) music on the 5-string acoustic violin. A distinguished performer and teacher of Hindustani classical and Western classical violin in the Washington, DC community, Nistha has performed in the United Nations, The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, and the Indian Embassy in Washington, DC. Internationally, she has performed at the U.S. Embassy in Colombia, and Poland, and Canada. Nistha is a recipient of multiple grants from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, including the 2012 Artist Fellowship. A versatile musician, Nistha pursues new horizons through a melding of tradition with contemporary innovation. She performs regularly with the Jazz trio The Fourth Stream, partners with GRAMMY nominated hip hop artist Christylez Bacon and six-string electric cellist Wytold, and has recorded on rock band NRI’s album. 

    4. DIPLOMATIC GREETING: Meet diplomats and the staff from the Embassy as they talk and answer questions about India. A special representative will officially welcome us.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
