Sri Shailendra Misra (L), Pandit Soumitra Lahiri.
Hour 1: Japanese music in honor of Golden Week and the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Hours 2-3: 10th Annual NYC All-Night Indian Classical Concert preview - starting with a live performance by Pandit Soumitra Lahiri and Sri Shailendra Misra.
All night concerts of Indian classical music are pretty rare on the subcontinent and extremely rare in North America. But a few years ago NY-based tabla player and scene advocate Samir Chatterjee was inspired to make such a concert happen on an annual basis.
This year's 10th annual all-nighter takes place Saturday to Sunday May 9 to 10 at the Society of Ethical Culture, 2 W 64 St (at Central Park West) in Manhattan. We get a preview with a live performance by two musicians who will be among the many participants in the concert: highly regarded veteran virtuosos Pandit Soumitra Lahiri (sitar) and Sri Shailendra Misra (tabla). Samir Chatterjee's son, up-and-coming tabla player Dibyarka Chatterjee, joins to help preview the all-nighter, playing cd tracks by other artists on the bill.

The whole cd is New Orleans jazz covers but that track stands out for me. The band also does more typical chin don repertoire on other cds. I can tell you more by email!
