Classical Indian Music
with the Batish Family
Saturday, June 27th 7-9pm
Seaside Studio (1360 Fremont Blvd)
Join us for an evening of Classical Indian Music with the Batish Family!
The Batish family performances are truly a thrilling experience to behold. The musical conversation is exhilarating to watch unfold. No one concert is the same as another. The very nature of North Indian classical music is based on the premise of improvisation.
With Ashwin leading and Keshav following, the music digs deeper and deeper into the raga being performed. From the intricate and delicate Alaap - an un-metered introductory raga expansion, to the fast lightening passages of the finale where sitar and tabla merge into one, the audiences are held spellbound by this dynamic interaction.
Keshav Batish has been studying tabla from his father since the tender age of 7 and today his understanding of the complexities of the Indian music tradition are simply stunning. Ashwin’s sister, Meena Batish, brings alive the vibrant collection of compositions by her brother father Pandit Shiv Dayal Batish. She can sing from classical to Punjabi folk songs, bhangara, geet, ghazals, and bhajans. These are the roots of a rich Hindustani North Indian music tradition.
Experiencing a live performance by this musical family is a very precious, one of a kind, experience!
