Roopa Panesar - Lincoln Center Rubenstein Atrium - September 7, 2017
I’m starting to run out of instruments that I haven’t sketched – this is my first sitar. I’m not sufficiently knowledgeable about Indian music to know who’s got the chops, but it’s clear that Panesar does. And with two Indian drum masters (one from the northern tradition, one from the southern, again don’t ask me which is which). You can tell that this stuff is a truly interactive (somewhat improvised, I’m guessing) goading conversation amongst the players, and I love the glee on their faces when they all get to the same break point together.
