Samay - A journey through time
Ra-Ve Cultural Foundation is proud to bring another scintillating Indian traditional musical performance to Northwest Arkansas. Featuring the Flute Sisters, this new event will bring together something old and something new in a production called “Samay - the passage of time”. The Flute Sisters will be accompanied by Shri Satyajeet Talwalkar on the Tabla and
Shri Mrinal Upadhyay on the Pakhawaj. The flute is a simple instrument but has stood the test of time bringing much peace to many souls. The pakhawaj is an ancient instrument, typically used in Hindustani music concerts and will be paired with the tabla which is a comparatively more modern instrument.
Debopriya and Suchismita are the world's most unique pair of flautist sisters for whom flute is life. In their natural settings, with highly gifted parents, Prof. Robin Chatterjee & Mrs. Krishna Chatterjee; both vocalists & composers from Allahabad, the musical sojourn of The Flute Sisters began early on. Their quest for the depth & richness of Hindustani classical music, especially the flute or ‘Bansuri’ brought them to the feet of Guru, the greatest living exponent of Maihar Senia Gharana, the Sun of Flute Padmavibhushan Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia.
