I’m thrilled to announce a workshop led by Pandit Subhen Chatterjee (tabla) and Janab Arshad Ali Khan (vocals) on Tuesday March 19th at 7pm. They will be playing a concert presented by Raag-Mala Toronto on the previous Saturday at the Aga Khan museum. Pt Subhen Chatterjee is a senior disciple and the first student of the legendary Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri (my teacher), in addition to being a celebrated tabla player and an enthusiastic teacher. Arshad, the grandson of the legendary sarangi maestro late Padmashree Ustad Shakoor Khan, was absorbed into the ITC Sangeet Research Academy, Kolkata, as a scholar at the age of six. Today, Arshad’s style, while strikingly original in its creative exposition of the raag, is steeped in tradition. You can find out more about the workshop in the Eventbrite link below and I’m also attaching the flyer:
100% of the proceeds are going to the artists to help with their touring expenses. The workshop will take place at the Inner Space studio located at 54A Cawthra Avenue in Toronto.
