Raga Kirwani - Alaap, Jor and Vilambit Grat (with Tabla) in Sitarkhani Taal by Soumitra Lahiri and Shailendra Mishra
All night concerts of Indian classical music are common on the subcontinent but rare in North America. But a few years ago NY-based tabla player and scene advocate Samir Chatterjee [shuh - MEER CHAT - ter - jee] took it upon himself make such a concert happen on an annual basis. This year's 10th annual all-nighter takes place Saturday to Sunday May 9 to 10 at the Society of Ethical Culture in Manhattan. We get a preview with three musicians who will be among the many participants in the concert. Highly regarded veteran virtuosos Pandit Soumitra Lahiri [soo - MITT - ruh la - HEE - ree] (sitar) and Sri Shailendra Misra [shuh - LEN - druh MISS - ruh] (tabla); and representing the next generation, Samir Chatterjee's son, up-and-coming tabla player Dibyarka Chatterjee [dib-YAR-kuh CHAT-ter-jee].
