You’ve probably heard the sitar and tabla instruments of classical Indian music in movies, but this Saturday, it gets even better — hear them played in person by world-renowned musicians Anupama Bhagwat and Ravi Albright. Both perform for a concert hosted by the South Asia Cultural Association of Spokane. Anupama, a sitar musician who has performed globally since 1995, fuses her more modern style with tradition of the instrument. And though Albright was born in Seattle, he is no stranger to global performances. In 2006, he became a part of the Farukhabad Gharana, a well-known traditional school of tabla playing in India. After both performances, this cultural immersion doesn’t end: Spokane’s Taste of India will be selling Indian food and tea.
