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. 

70/70 @ TARA THEATRE
At midnight on 14/15 August 1947, India and Pakistan became independent from the British Empire. A relationship that formally began with Sir Thomas Roe’s embassy to the court of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir in 1615, ended over three centuries later with the independent nations of India and Pakistan.
The Indian sub-continent shaped Britain’s destiny, as much as Britain shaped modern India and Pakistan’s. Tara Theatre marks this extraordinarily intimate relationship through a series of 70 events over the course of the year - plays, music, dance and spoken word that illuminate the connections between the worlds of India, Pakistan and Britain.
“A moment comes which comes but rarely in history,
when we step out from the old to the new…”
Jawaharlal Nehru on 15 August 1947
