Debapriya (Dev) Adhikary

Be soothed by the sitar

Duet of Wind – An Indian (Hindustani) Classical Music Concert is at the David Lam Auditorium June 22

The Society For Indian Classical Arts, a student club at the University of Victoria, hosts Debapriya Adhikary, Samanwaya Sarkar and Suryaksha Deshpande in concert this Saturday.

“Victoria has many people who love the sitar and are always asking about sitar concerts and sitar teachers,” said Sridevi Ganti, one of the concert organizers. “Sitar is one instrument that has become very popular and loved among the western audience.”

Adhikary’s enchanting voice merges with Sarkar’s mesmerizing strokes on the sitar, creating music that makes the audience feel as if these young artists have merged into one.

They will be accompanied by expert tabla player Deshpande.  All the three are Grade “A” artists of All India Radio.

“Don’t miss this soulful music concert here in Victoria … There have been sold-out shows in other Canadian cities and we do not want the people of Victoria to miss out on this amazing event,” Ganti said.

Duet of Wind – An Indian (Hindustani) Classical Music Concert is at the David Lam Auditorium, A144 MacLaurin Building at the University of Victoria on June 22, at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $20/$15 for students and are available at Long and McQuade, Munro’s Books and at the door.
