All-Night Indian Classical Concert Preview + Japan Golden Week

Hear this show now:  Pop‑up player! | Add or read comments

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.

Info on the 10th annual all-night concert of Indian classical music:

Samir Chatterjee’s organization Chhandayan, a great resource for Indian classical music including the production of many concerts in our area:

Extra special thanks to our illustrious engineer Bil Bowen!

This Ching-Dong track is wonderful - is it all as good?

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!
