The superb sitar stylings of Roopa Panesar
with lauded percussionists
Pirashanna Thevarajah and Nitin Mitta

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments




Celebrated UK-based sitar player Roopa Panesar is in town for several showcase performances pegged to the annual APAP Arts Presenters Conference:

She kicks off the Friday night (January 6th) star-studded Mundial showcase at Drom, 85 Ave. A in the East Village at 7 pm sharp,

and she presents a full-length concert performance Saturday night (January 7th) from 7:30 to 9:30 pm at Chhandayan Center for Indian Music, 4 W 43rd St. in midtown Manhattan.

We're thrilled she'll be stopping by FMU too, along with the two acclaimed percussionists who are also joining her for the concerts: Pirashanna Thevarajah on South Indian mridangam and more, and New York's own Nitin Mitta on tabla.

Plus we preview other APAP-related showcase concerts this weekend including the highest profile world music event, the 3-stage 12-artist globalFEST Sunday night at Webster Hall.

And we'll look ahead to next weekend's similarly-named and equally renowned Golden Festival, the annual bacchanal of Balkan and East European music and folk-dance at Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn, with live recordings from last year's festival culled from WFMU's Free Music Archive.

Huge thanks to Jaswinder Singh and Steven Hunt of Asian Arts Agency in Bristol, UK; Mehmet Dede of Drom and of course our illustrious engineer, Glenn Luttman.
