World Music Blast with Ashwin Batish and Sitar Power!

I am playing in Santa Cruz. I can organize  meetup with any of you that might be interested in coming.  Here is the announcement from the Jazz Center ......

A legend of the Bay Area’s world music scene, Ashwin Batish is a sitar and tabla master.  Trained from an early age in the north Indian classical traditions by his father, Batish has forged his own unique style, melding pop, rock, jazz and other world music genres with Indian raga, resulting in his own special blend of Sitar Power. His pioneering efforts in worldbeat music have earned him a special place amongst his contemporaries. Augmented by guitar effect pedals and amplification, Batish’s souped-up sitar sound is compelling and powerful. Based in Santa Cruz, Batish is also an educator and is one of our local music scene’s great resources.
