Saw a performance by Panchanan Sardar on Sitar with accompanying Tablas. Was an amazing performance, definitely going to consider dropping digital music in favour of real instuments! He also had a Q&A session after in which he played a couple of traditional Irish songs, which worked surprisingly well on Sitar. His explanation of the Raga was interesting, he used the metaphor of learning a Raga being like a scholar learning a body of work. Each Raga performance is then similar to an essay by the scholar, where the same body of learning is presented, but it is never exactly the same, much in the way that no essay is the same.
