Sojourn Beyond Borders

A Sojourn Beyond Borders (Indian Ragas from Classical to Fusion)

On the evening of June 15th, 2013, the Tagore Society of Houston in partnership with Houston Arts Alliance and the City of Houston, presented to music lovers of Houston, an enchanting melodious evening with music maestros from India, Pandit Tejendra Narayan Majumdar on Sarod and Pandit Tanmoy Bose on Tabla at the Jewish Community Center Houston.

For about 3 hours this duo of musical genius, representative of a combination of intellectual density and technical virtuosity in their instruments – carried the audience through a mesmerizing musical journey that is beyond any geographical, cultural or musical boundary.

The blend of traditionalism and modernization of Indian music is resoundingly represented by these two musical geniuses of current India. As expected, the performance of the evening left a memorable mark on this Houston audience, of this emerging trend of music in India, which while true to its classical roots is not afraid to experiment and expand, and of which PanditsTejendra Narayan Majumdar and Tanmoy Bose are pioneers and pathfinders.
