This workshop is part of Sangeet Millennium’s Songs of Benaras tour in remembrance of our GuruMa Padma Vibhushan Girija Devi.
Sangeet Millennium Ensemble will assemble a choice group of musicians to present an authentic tow-part world music concert in a three-city tour along the Rio Grande river in northern New Mexico May 23-28, 2019. They will weave together classical South Asian vocal music, tabla, and sitar in the first half, followed by a blend of sitar, sax, and tabla for a fusion sound in the second half, featuring the Sangeet Millennium Ensemble with guest artists Rupan Samanta and Uddalak Samanta, on tour from India. The ensemble’s leader/project director, Dr. Amie Maciszewski, is a native New Mexican. Tickets are on sale now on Eventbrite; sponsorship options available.
