Joanna Mack on Sitar
Joanna Mack began her study of Indian Classical sitar in 1997. She spent 8 years in Kolkata studying under Pandit Deepak Choudhury. She then returned to the US and has had the honor to study under Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Sarodia Bruce Hamm and Sangeet Research Academy Guru Partha Chatterjee. She has been teaching and performing since 2006.
Anil Prasad on Tabla
Anil Prasad grew up as a child prodigy on drums due in part to the influence of his famous mother who was a highly-respected sitarist and gifted singer. He eventually settled on the tabla, a two-piece drum that is favored for presenting Indian music of all styles. He refined his classical training under the great tabla master Zakir Hussain and has become one of the most-sought after Indian drummers in the Seattle area for classical and fusion music, both on stage and in the studio.
