Brooklyn Raga Massive: Art of the Jugalbandhi

Concert | 8pm

Jugalbandhi brings together two melodic instrumentalists in what is normally a more soloistic form. To have true dialogue is a rarefied art, a special subdivision of Indian classical music. Art of the Jugalbandhi showcases 3 duets; the bansuri players, Steve Gorn and Eric Fraser, Carnatic violinist Arun Ramamurthy and North Indian sarod player Anupam Shobhakar, and the dynamic duo of Abhik Mukherjee on sitar and Jay Gandhi on bansuri.
