Brooklyn Raga Massive
Colors of Raga with Jay Gandhi & Abhik Mukherjee
About the Performance
The Brooklyn Raga Massive Colors of Raga series is back, with a collaborative concert with Jay Gandhi and Abhik Mukherjee, accompanied by Tejas Tope on table. Both captivating solo performers in their own right, they have also become well known for their enthralling musical chemistry together.
Abhik Mukherjee is a shining voice of the Imdhadkhani sitar gharana and Jay Gandhi, a leading disciple of bansuri legend Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia. Their contrasting yet complementary musical styles offer a compelling composite of melodic and rhythmic approaches and their performances are often imbued with a deep and spontaneous exploration of rasa (emotional essence) and mood. Their repertoire ranges from the introspective and meditative to the joyful, romantic and ecstatic.
