Sandeep Koranne, a virtuoso on sitar, will present the classical music of North India. Sandeep is from New Delhi and has been performing in public since the age of 10. He has performed regularly on All India Radio and has performed in Sacramento, Sunnyvale and Portland. Indian Classical music is thousands of years old, created by the ancient sages attuned to the cycles of nature. They observed and refined their experiences of sound and rhythm and its relationship to and effect on nature and the human psyche. Continually evolving for thousands of years, the music of India has become one of the most meditative and beautiful in the world, a spiritual and living system of Raga (melody) and Tala (rhythm). Sandeep will be accompanied by Saikiran Madhusudan on tabla. For more information, please go to
