Jugalbandhi Concert Tour for Sankara Nethralaya

As some of you may know, last year my father and I performed a series of benefit concerts for Sankara Nethralaya in various cities in the US, to raise awareness and funds for the wonderful work that SN has been doing. The concerts were a wonderful way for rasikas of Carnatic Music to support a noble cause and at the same time enjoy their favorite music. My father and I were really moved by the affection and support we received from our rasikas at all of those programs.

This year, Sankara Nethralaya have invited me to perform a series of Carnatic/Hindustani Jugalbandhi concerts with Snehashish Mozumder who plays Hindustani Mandolin. We will be accompanied by V. Rajasekar on Mridangam and Subrata Bhattacharya on Tabla. We are scheduled to perform in ten cities across the US in August and September. The dates and venues are listed below:
