Rishta - Kinship ~ A meeting of Classical Music from India and Persia
Raga Rasa would like to invite you to "Rista“ (kinship) ~ A musical dialogue tracing and affirming an ongoing friendship of Indian and Persian Classical Music featuring world renowned maestros of the tradition: Kartik Seshadri (sitar) and Kayhan Kalhor (kamancheh) with Arup Chattopadhyay on tabla.
While this is a meeting of two ancient cultures, it is also a collaboration of two organisations - Raga Rasa and CRY America - partnering together for a common cause to support Children’s Rights globally.
This evening’s musical offering is aimed at raising awareness about Raga Rasa and CRY America under the guiding philosophy of Kartik Seshadri (founder and visionary of Raga Rasa) that “Music is one of the most powerful instruments for enabling social empowerment and change”.
The concert is a fundraiser for CRY America’s “Stay In School Girl Child Campaign”.
