Purbayan Chatterjee & Rakesh Chaurasia: “Pahadi”

By: Jack Anderson

If you’re a lover of traditional Indian music like I am, you won’t want to miss a certain concert in town this weekend. Just two weeks after the release of their seven-song full-length Saath Saath, Mumbai sitar maestro Purbayan Chatterjee and flautist Rakesh Chaurasia are set to perform 7PM this Saturday at Bates Recital Hall. They’ll be joined by Saath Saath percussionist Ojas Adhiya for an evening of indigenous Indian expression that’s guaranteed to guide your thoughts with salubrious sitar, fervent flute, and tantalizing tabla. Want to appreciate these meditative raggas in the comfort of your own home? Saath Saath is already out on streaming, allowing you to be in the moment, morning, noon, or night. Needless to say, Saath Saath is best experienced front-to-back in full, but if you have only a few minutes to duck out of the work mindset, let Purbayan, Rakesh, and Ojas help you over the hump with “Pahadi”.

Their unique placement of feminine falsettos over seductive, sample-and-synth-heavy soundscapes still inspires acts today, not just in the […]

Beekeeper Spaceman: “Locusts and Honey”

So before touching down to the terrestrial for the weekend, let’s heed a far out beacon from Dallas duo Beekeeper Spaceman. The skeleton crew consists of guitarist-singer-songwriter Greg Brownderville and producer/multi-instrumentalist Spencer Kenney, who named themselves after […]
