Colours of India on song
AN ancient Indian instrument with over 50 strings, the sarangi, whose name means 'hundred colours', evokes the moods and tones of the human voice.
Four masters of Indian classical music - father and son sarangi players Pandit Santosh Mishra and Sangeet Mishra from India, Shen Flindell, Brisbane's leading classical tabla player and vocalist Yuki Taniguchi Flindell have come together for a series of concerts featuring the sarangi.
Santosh and Sangeet are eighth-generation sarangi players. Augmented by Yuki's devotional Sanskrit mantras and Shen's Indian-trained tabla, they play the Nimbin School of Arts Hall this Friday, August 24.
