Padmashree Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt concert review 

It is a very special occasion to see a musician so technically flawless at their instrument that they can communicate anything they want. At the Indian Classical Music Circle of Indianapolis' concert Saturday, the audience was treated to not one, but two musicians of that caliber. Padmashree Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, the developer of the Mohan Veena (best described as the love-child of a sitar and Hawaiian slide guitar), and Samir Chatterjee, a master tabla player whose touch is as fluid as Bhatt's lyrical vibrato, communicated together with a seemingly telepathic connection. Though the first raag lasted over an hour, the audience was fully engaged the whole time. Samarpita Bajpai's rhythmic, yet graceful Chitra Natyam -- or "picture painting dancing" -- in the first half of the evening was a rare treat to an art form that, sadly, is dying out.
