Share this event:


Veena Chandra is an internationally renowned sitarist, composer, teacher and choreographer. Born in the Himalayas, Veena was inspired to play music by her father, her first Guru. He loved sitar so much that he named her Veena, after the precursor to the sitar. She studied with Shri Satish Chandra, a disciple of Ravi Shankar. She is noted for her skill and sensitivity in the meend (bending of wire) and her ability to produce vocal sounds on the sitar. She is accompanied by the youngest of her six children, Devesh Chandra, on tabla. Immersed in music at a young age, Devesh is fortunate to have grown up surrounded by iconic figures of Indian music. Together they have a rare ability to communicate the beauty and complexity of North Indian Classical music to the western listener. Veena explains that there is a triangular relationship between the artist, the art and the audience. The power in their music is vitalizing and healing to the body, clarifying to the mind, and food for the soul.
