Recalling the Valley – Podcast 254

Recored and broadcast live at the Ragas Live Festival 2017 from the Rubin Museum of Art, we hear the world premier of the new project: Recalling the Valley.

Jay Gandhi (bansuri) and Max ZT’s (hammered dulcimer) pay tribute to their world-renowned teachers, Shivkumar Sharma and Hariprasad Chaurasia. With Ehren Hanson on tabla they will perform music inspired by their gurus’ beloved album, “Call of the Valley.”

They also have a great dialogue with Andrew Shantz about creating a traditional art when it is no longer in its country of origin.

Ragas Live Festival is supported by the Rubin Museum of Art, WKCR and Humanities New York.
