Ravi Shankar Tribute
Celebrate the music of Ravi Shankar with this special tribute concert featuring Chris "Citrus" Sauthoff on the sitar and Dustin Adams on the tabla.
Chris's memories of Ravi go back to when he was very young. "I first heard Ravi's music on the Concert for Bangladesh album that my mother owned. I loved the sounds and music long before I understood who was playing it or on what instrument is was. I was two years old and hooked."
Chris and Dustin will be playing ragas "Maru Bihag" and "Bimpalasi."
