Richard Bennett and Indro Roy-Chowdhury
Jazz and Raga
Wednesday, March 2, 2016
7:00 PM–8:30 PM
Pianist/composer Richard Bennett and sitarist Indro Roy-Chowdhury return to the Rubin to perform new music as a chamber duo. An astonishing variety of sounds—often meditative, always soulful and passionate—are created from this confluence of stringed instruments.
Bennett has six critically acclaimed albums of his raga-based compositions on Indian record labels. Roy-Chowdhury appears fresh off a concert tour of India. New moods will be conjured and sparks will fly for what promises to be an exciting night of original music.
Presented with Harrice Miller Entertainment and community partner Sunny Thakkar.
Musical performances at the Rubin Museum are made possible by the Carlo and MicÃ³l Schejola Foundation. Additional support is provided by funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
