K. Sridhar, Virtuoso Sarod Player, concert at UNCW 4-09-17

Saturday April 09, 2017


K. Sridhar is a virtuoso of one of the world’s most complex instruments, the Sarod. He masterfully blends two music traditions that coexist in India – that of the North (Hindustani) and of the South (Carnatic). A featured artist on Peter Gabriel’s RealWorld label, Sridhar began touring out of India in 1982 and has given hundreds of concerts worldwide. As one critic put it, “A concert by K. Sridhar is a rare and distinctive offering – full of heart,” (The New Mexican, USA, 2007). To his loyal listeners, K. Sridhar offers ongoing opportunities to experience what he calls Nada Yoga or “union through sound.”
