Tonight at Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center: sitar legend Ravi Shankar and his daughter, Anoushka Shankar – a righteous sitar player on her own merits.
I’m going, but I just noticed today that the show has sold out. While I can’t do much about that for you I CAN let you know right now there are a couple of other hot shows coming along soon that will also likely sell out, and you’ll miss out if you don’t plan ahead to be there:
Sunday, Nov. 1st @ the Flynn –Dee Dee Bridgewater and her “Lady Day” tribute to Billie Holiday
Sunday, Nov. 9th @ Parima Thai Restaurant – Rupa & the April Fishes: With a signature blend of gypsy/Indian/Spanish/French influences, their energetic second release “Este Mundo” is due out later this month on Vermont’s own Cumbancha label.
Sunday, April 18 – Mali’s Rokia Traoré: The new recording (Tchmantché) fuses traditional instruments with blues guitar and Rokia’s powerful voice, furthering her reputation as one of Africa’s most eclectic and vibrant musicians.
There will be others, I know. Keep an eye out here. And if you hear of them before I do – let me know!
