Tabla and Bansuri Concert


Two of the masters of Indian music combine to present music at its purest; G.S. Sachev on bansuri and Swapan Chaudhuri on tabla, creating melody and rhythm, working together to create transcendent beauty.

G.S. Sachdev began playing the bansuri when he was 14, and has created a rare form of instant communication with audiences through his music. He has shied away from fusion, finding great pleasure within traditional pure classical Indian music.

Sachdev takes the listener with him on a highly personal and reflective journey that transcends all geographic boundaries of musical origin and style, and touches to the very core of universal musical expression.

With melody comes rhythm. Swapan Chaudhuri’s music is the spontaneous expression of his powerful emotions and his deep knowledge of tabla.

Instinctively, music lovers respond with delight as Chaudhuri arranges time and sound into myriad, magnificent, multifaceted patterns. Swapan Chaudhuri started learning tabla at the age of five. He bases his style on the intensive training he received from his guru, the late Pandit Santosh Krishna Biswas of Calcutta.n

Saturday, May 5, 8 p.m. Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, 3301 Lyon Street, San Francisco. $25, $35, $50, $65. (415) 392-4400.
