Snehasish Mozumder @ The Bridgewater Hall
23 Nov 2013 | 13:00 until 15:00
Snehasish Mozumder mandolin
Kousic Sen tabla
Snehasish Mozumder explores the rich mellow sound of the mandolin, a rare instrument in Hindustani music.
The mandolin was adopted into Indian classical music in the mid 20th century, and has since become a popular instrument with many adaptations developed for the genre. Traditionally used in Carnatic music, Snehasish has blended the mandolin seamlessly into the Hindustani style. He plays an oversized mandolin with four pair strings, where two pairs are thick, and the other two are standard; resulting is an alteration in tuning that creates a deep mellow sound. Snehasish will be accompanied by highly acclaimed tabla maestro Kousic Sen.
A delicious Indian lunch is available in the foyer from 12pm.
