Sangeet Misha, an eighth generation Sarangi player from Varanasi, India, will perform in an intimate concert at Red Tent.
This talented performer has mastered this extremely difficult instrument at a young age thanks to his unbroken family lineage of musicians. The Sarangi is a rare and beautiful string instrument with 37-40 strings that is said to most resemble the sound of the human voice. Its name means ‘a hundred colours’ – referring to its ability to produce a large palette of colour and emotion.
Sangeet will be joined by acclaimed Sufi musician Tahir Qawwal, Bhairavi Devi and tabla player Shen Flindell. They will perform devotional music from India and Pakistan.
Red Tent Yoga, Saturday January 4. Doors open 7pm, show starts 7.30pm
Tickets @ the door $20/ $15 conc.
