An evening of North Indian classical music with internationally acclaimed artist Rajeev Taranath, sarod, accompanied by Abhiman Kaushal, tabla.
A brilliant performer and award-winning composer, Taranath is today one of the world’s leading exponents of the sarod. A distinguished disciple of Maestro Ali Akbar Khan, his performances masterfully combine the depth and rigor of the tradition of Hindustani classical music with an inspired imagination and emotional intensity.
Rajeev Taranath’s sarod improvisations mixed the spiritual and the spirited. . . The raga began with introspective meditation and proceeded into an exuberant rhythmic celebration. –New York Times
