Venue:DC Raga Jam feat. Anand Vemuri

 

Come out for this monthly jam session for Indian classical music practitioners and lovers!

This month our featured artist is Anand Vemuri. Though largely a self-taught musician, Advait has studied at the Maharaja Sayajirao University in Baroda, India, and in the U.S. with Ustad Tari Khan and the great Ustad Zakir Hussain. As an accompanist, he has shared the stage with such notables as Nisar Bazmi, Ustad Nafiz Ali Khan, and Pandit Subroto Roy Choudury. Advait has developed a unique style which creatively blends a mix of East and West. Along with Karavika, he also plays with fusion alternative rock/Indian group Banyan Trees as well as DC-based music ensemble, Nootana.
