Event Description
Join us for an afternoon of traditional Indian vocal music, or Dhrupad. Vocalist Nirmalya Dey will be accompanied by Mohan Shyam Sharma on the Pakhawaj, which is a double-headed drum placed horizontally, with the left hand playing the larger drum head and the right hand playing the smaller drum head. The instrument is traditionally used to accompany vocal and dance performances.
