“Mesmerizing” --- The New York Times
We are excited to welcome two of the world’s most accomplished instrumentalists who have taken their musicianship to new levels of thrilling performance. Yumi Kurosawa is a virtuosic composer and player of both the Japanese 13- and 20-string koto. Dynamic, lyrical, and powerful, her music exemplifies the innate grace of this plucked, harp-like instrument. She is lauded as both a soloist and composer and has collaborated on projects with the likes of Daron Hagen, Les Twins, the Houston Ballet, and the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra. Anubrata Chatterjee, son of the world-renowned tabla maestro, Anindo Chatterjee, was nurtured from a very tender age to be a tabla virtuoso. He was the last disciple of the great tabla guru, Jnan Prakash Ghosh, and has proved himself as a soloist and an accompanist, having performed at some of the most prestigious international venues. He is also passionate about education and holds regular workshops in New York at the Anindo Chatterjee School of Tabla. Together, these two musicians will take us on an unforgettable journey of melody and rhythm through the intertwining of two beautiful instruments.
