Department of Music Recital Series 2017-2018
Thursday, February 8, 2018 - 21:40

The UPEI Department of Music Recital Series 2017-2018 presents Raga Music featuring Rod Thomas Squance, on the marimba (a Central American xylophone), and Abbas Janmohamed, on the tabla (a pair of sophisticated traditional drums from India) will play music inspired by the North Indian, Hindustani tradition of classical raga, but with an innovative and multicultural treatment. Raga is a centuries-old form of classical music originating in India, with a combination of composed and improvised elements and very close communication and interaction between the performers.

Together, Rod and Abbas will present North Indian raga music with a fresh, exciting and highly entertaining approach that still preserves the integrity and authenticity of the tradition.

The recital will take place on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 7:30 PM in the Dr. Steel Recital Hall, UPEI Campus.

Admission for adults: $20 and students: $15. Tickets available at the door or online by clicking here.
