An Evening of Classical Indian Music
Saturday, June 5, 2004, 8 pm
Peabody Essex Museum
Morse Auditorium
Salem, Massachusetts
Concert & Museum admission: nonmembers $13, members $10

The Peabody Essex Museum is proud to present renowned artist Pandit Ajay Pohankar accompanied by his son, Abhijit Pohankar and Aditya Kalyapur in an evening of classical Indian music. With aesthetic beauty and impeccable technique, Pandit (Maestro) Ajay Pohankar is a highly acclaimed artist of Hindustani classical music. Pt. Ajay Pohankar performs ragas, melodic traditional classical and semi-classical music. Ragas are one of the most important concepts in Indian music and may be thought of as an acoustic method of coloring the mind of the listener with an emotion. An intelligent and conscientious musician, Pt. Ajay has combined into his singing style the influences of world renowned Ustad Amir Khan. Ajay's expressive voice has an infinite reach - it can soothe the soul as effectively as it can inspire the heart.

This concert will also feature Pt. Ajay's talented son, Shri Abhijit Pohankar, on the classical Indian keyboard. Abhijit, disciple of Santoor Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, is one of the few Indian classical keyboardists. His sound on the keyboard is a mixture of Santoor and piano, necessary for great classical music. His performances create a unique effect on the listeners, who are transported in a different world while listening to him play. Aditya Kalyanpur will accompany the duo on the tabla.
