Sandeep Das and The HUM Ensemble: Delhi to Damascus

Sun. Nov 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

- Free

Performing at Colby College and funded by the Robert J. Strider Concert Fund, Delhi to Damascus is a celebration of the historical and cultural ties between India and Syria. The project’s repertoire explores traditional Indian ragas; the melodic interplay of Arabic Maqams, Sufi poems, lyrical Thumri and Dadra (traditional and old forms of singing); and classical rhythm cycles and pulsating folk grooves. It takes the listeners on a mesmerizing journey of exquisite poetry and lyrical exposition along the winding roads from a time and period gone long ago.
