The rich cultural traditions of India will be celebrated in Traversing Traditions / India at Charter Oak Cultural Center, beginning September 22.
Traversing Traditions / India is a month-long celebration of Indian music, visual arts, dance and film. High-caliber performing artists will present both traditional and contemporary classical music and dances of India. The visual and media arts segments redefine notions of the “contemporary” through an amalgamation of traditional, indigenous, popular, and current art practice by both Indian and Western artists. Taken as a whole, Traversing Traditions / India explores the interconnected nature of India’s arts.
The music performance will focus in traditional Indian music, and feature performances by Abhik Mukherjee (sitar), Jay Gandhi (Bansuri) and Ranendra Das (Tabla).
Traversing Music will take place in the Charter Oak sanctuary on October 8 at 7 p.m. For more information, call 860-310-2580.
