ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Srinivas Reddy and Sameer Gupta are a dynamic young sitar and tabla duet dedicated to preserving the Hindustani classical music tradition of North India. SADHANA Foundation is proud to release their debut recording of live performances from their 2008 tour.


\"Srinivas Reddy and Sameer Gupta have a traditional, fresh and inspired approach; as well as a remarkable rapport, they also bring a contemplative tinge to their art. Expect all the stunning musicality of instrumental Indian classical music as you\'ve seen it before, as well as a depth that is a little more rare.\"
- Gautam Tejas Ganeshan, Founder & Artistic Director, Sangati Center

\"The first time I heard Srinivas play, I recall feeling distinctly that his tones had somehow lifted the audience, as if we were all being nourished by the music. On stage, Sameer is a force, both personally engaging to watch, and dynamic to listen to. Experience the tradition these musicians represent, as well as their personal interpretations, nuances and developments. They contribute much to the community in attendance.\"
- Meklit Hadero, Director, Red Poppy Arthouse
