FIELD: Kitundu & Sukhadia
Walter Kitundu (SF) and Robin Sukhadia (LA)
Join FIELD: Kitundu & Sukhadia on a sonic improvisation in 10 (Jhaptaal), 8 (Kherwa), and 6 (Dadra) beats of the north Indian classical rhythmic system. FIELD features Walter Kitundu on invented instruments and Robin Sukhadia on tabla. How are ancient musical traditions finding a voice in the present? In what manner should we use these aesthetic endeavors to propagate cultural respect, artistic investigation, and the development of multifaceted creative and educational experiences?

Registration for each project opens seven days prior to the actual event. One new project opens daily at noon beginning June 4, 2012. Times and audience capacity varies for each project.
