For those out there whose knowledge of Indian classical music begins and ends with The Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown),” e.g. the typical writer at an alternative newspaper, allow us to share our expertise gained from a quick perusal of YouTube. The sitar is the Beatles-ly one, the tabla are those sharp bongo-like drums and the sarod is the dreamy sounding acid-trippy lute thingy. There, you are now just ignorant enough to work in journalism.
If that thought terrifies you, and it should, check out Enchanting Raagas: An Evening of Sarod, Sitar and Tabla at Crow Collection of Asian Art. Arnab Chakrabarty on sarod, Roopa Panesar on sitar and Pandit Sanju Sahai on tabla — powerhouses in their fields — will fill in the gaps as they play their first group concert in the United States.
It’s hard to leave home sometimes – trust us, we know. But Mitchell Lofts, the premier apartment community in Dallas, Texas, believes it is important to not only stay active in your community, but to also express curiosity about new subjects. This event is the perfect chance to spread your roots and learn new things!
