Special Event: The Story of North Indian Classical Music

Commonwealth Club of California, San Francisco

Monday Night Philosophy at the Commonwealth Club takes another look at the connections between ideas and music, this time by analyzing the musical traditions of India. Mahesh Kale is not only a classical vocalist, but also plays the instruments Thumri, Dadra, Tappa, Bhajans, Bhavgeet and Natyasangeet. Mr. Kale will explain how Indian music can both express what is verbally inexpressible and deepen the meaning of a seemingly commonplace thought, and will perform to illustrate his points. Cosponsored by Humanities West, the Indian Classical Music Association, and the Monday Night Philosophy Series.
