Sandeep Das HUM Ensemble At Lincoln Center

Internationally acclaimed tabla virtuoso Sandeep Das and his classical Indian instrumental HUM Ensemble harness the transformative power of Eastern music as an inspiration of positive social change. The ensemble’s newest project, Delhi to Istanbul, is the latest initiative in their socially driven series, Transcending Borders One Note at a Time. This eclectic mix of original compositions and traditional arrangements explores the shared musical heritage of India and Turkey via the conjoined traditions of Indian ragas, Arabic maqams, Sufi poems, and lyrical thumri. The Grammy Award-winning Guggenheim Fellow Sandeep Das leads his quartet—featuring Tamer Pinarbasi on the kanun (zither), Rajib Karmakar on sitar, and Jay Gandhi on bansuri—for the NYC premiere of this transcendental work. This was an amazing event that was free to anyone near the Lincoln Center and online. This is the spot to go if you can make it there, on way or any way.
