Thank you all for attending the First Indian Classical music concert brought by ktru!!
KTRU’s very first Concert of Indian Classical music – drew a huge crowd on a Tuesday evening. Shankar Bhattacharyya’s sarode and Sri Gourisankar’s tabla mesmerized the audience. The selection of ragas was explained to the curious spectators by Shankar Bhattacharyya. The sawaal-jawab; dialogue between the instruments was fascinating!
Dr. Bhattacharyya recalled his time at his graduate school – Rice University. He fondly shared his very first day at Rice. ” I looked at Sammy’s and it reminded me of my very first day here at Rice. I was standing in line for food and a friend pointed out to me that the person ahead of us in line was the President of Rice, President and students all ate at the same place” he said.
