From North India to the Northwest

Debi Prasad Chatterjee

Presented by Island Consort and Wayward Music Series, From North India to the Northwest celebrates the rich musical connections between artists from diverse musical backgrounds. During one evening, the event will alternate performances by two outstanding ensembles:

From Kolkata, India master sitar player Pandit Debi Prasad Chatterjee will perform alongside Northwest artists Ravi Albright on tabla, and saxophonist Neil Welch (of Bad Luck, King Tears Bat Trip). The artists will explore a fusion of classical and western improvisation.

Whidbey Island-based pianist Sheila Weidendorf leads an ensemble exploring contemporary classical music of Alan Hovhaness, Rebecca Clarke’s Morpheus and more. Weidendorf is joined on stage with Seattle’s James Patterson (french horn) and Roxanna Patterson (viola).
