This event will be a Hindustani Classical Music Recital by Ehren Hanson on tabla and Camila Celin on sarod.
Classical Indian music is a sonic journey to delight the senses, uplift the spirit and lead us into deep surrender. By surrendering to deep listening, we can transform ourselves and improve our lives.
Ehren and Camila have an intimate musical connection that spans 18 years, and 3 continents. Their music has transported and nourished audiences around the world. In NYC, they have been performing, teaching, and promoting Indian music for over a decade, and it will be a rare treat to watch these two incredible artists live.
