Renowned Indian Classical Player @ UMASS (member-suggested member-organizable)

(This is not an official event. I've posted it in case members have an interest, with the idea that group regulars who know each other may contact each other (via this site or phone) and self-organize (thus my terminology "member-organizable").

This event was suggested by Maria (member at this link: http://www.meetup.com/Northampton-Amherst-Chamber-Concert-Goers/members/9832693/ ).  You should contact her, as she will likely go.

Credited for the invention of Mohan Veena, Vishwa plays with blinding speed and faultless legato and is undoubtedly one of the most versatile and greatest slide players in the world. Subhen Chatterjee performing the tabla, studied under the illustrious tabla maestro Swapan Chowdhury.

    Absolutely brilliant. I was literally awestruck--in such awe that I couldn't speak for a few minutes after the concert. I spoke to him afterwards about my 22 y.o. granddaughter, a fluent Hindi speaker now in Mumbai and it turned out that she had been in his home town!
    The tabla player was also marvelous. They both had blindingly fast finger and hand movements without giving up the emotion that the music called for

    Hi Michael and Maria Lydia! The irony is that I suggested this and wanted so much to go but I won't due to a minor surgery on that day! Enjoy it! Maria

    I recommend this recital. The musicianship is extraordinary and the experience both aurally and visually exciting.
