Arnab Chakrabarty in Concert
Part of SAMA Arts Network's StringFEST: Festival of Plucked & Bowed Instruments
Sat 22 April, 7:30pm
Arnab Chakrabarty is an outstanding exponent of Hindustani classical music, and is arguably among the top handful of currently active sarod players. A relentlessly self-improving student of music, a teacher of extraordinary ability, an instrument designer and restorer of considerable skill, Arnab Chakrabarty is the complete sarod musician of his generation.
Arnab's performances are noteworthy for a profound understanding of raga, deep erudition of both the sarod tradition and of Hindustani music in general, controlled virtuosity and an exquisite tonal quality. Trained by the late Kalyan Mukherjea (1943-2010), a disciple of Radhika Mohan Maitra, the legendary custodian of the Shahjahanpur tradition of sarod music, Arnab is described by his teacher as
“the best representative today of the musical values I had inherited from Pandit Maitra”.
Don't miss this chance to see a truly talented musician in Tara's intimate theatre with superb accoustics.
