Pandit Partho Sarothy / Dr. Vinay Bhide

Presented by Raag-Mala Toronto and part of Small World's 16th Annual Asian Music Series sponsored by TD Bank.

Artist change:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Vidushi Shruti Sadolikar is unable to perform on May 5th. However, Dr. Vinay Bhide will be performing in her place. As previously announced, the concert will start with a sarod recital by Pandit Partho Sarothy, with Pandit Ramdas Palsule on tabla.

Dr. Vinay Bhide studied vocal classical singing for fifteen years with Pandit Eknath Kulkarni, a disciple of late Ustad Bade Ghulamali Khan, the doyen of Patiala Gharana. He went to France in 1972, where he lived for ten years as a researcher and earned a PhD in Physics. While there, he gave recitals and taught Indian music at the Conservatory of Paris. He also travelled to perform in Belgium, Holland, and Switzerland. Since moving to Canada in 1996, Vinayji has continued to perform and teach music in Canada and US. He is an Adjunct Research Professor at the Music Department, Carleton University in Ottawa.

Pandit Partho Sarothy is a sarod virtuoso who trained directly under the guidance of Pt. Ravi Shankar. He makes the exploration of raags an exercise in harmony and tranquility. Pandit Ramdas Palsule, a senior disciple of Pandit Suresh Talwalkar, will provide tabla accompaniment.
