“Our sages developed music from time immemorial for our mind to take shelter in that pure being which stands apart from the body and mind as one’s true self. Real music is not for wealth, not for honours or even for the joys of the mind – but as a path for realization and salvation. This is what I truly feel.” Ali Akbar Khan
This evening of music will feature the genius of Steve Oda on sarode, the heavenly flute playing of Taro Terahara and the inspired tabla playing of Ty Burhoe. The sarode is an 25 stringed lute with a steel fretless neck. It has a rich and heart warming tone and has been the Instrument of choice for some of India's greatest musicians which has elevated it to become one of the shining stars of Indian classical music. Steve Oda's deep knowledge of the tradition and his creative, joyous expression makes the ancient tradition come alive and into harmony with the the modern world we live in today. Taro Terahara is Japan’s premier Bansuri (bamboo flute) player and fills the heart with Krishna’s sound. His inspirational musicianship and peaceful presence are a treat for the Spirit and a joy for the ears. The tabla is considered one of the most complex instruments on the planet and is capable of producing an amazingly sophisticated and melodious voice. Ty is considered one of the most innovative players in todays music scene and his melodious style invites the listener to "let go", and come into rhythm with the heart.
