Sutanu sur ji lives live three hours from Chicago, in a town where everything is available, including a prestigious concert hall. But there is hardly any focus on Indian music,” Sutanu tells Global Indian.
Kevin considers himself a global citizen and is interested in different cultures and forms of music.
he recalls how this collaboration happened.
He chose the Esmail piece because he wanted to show a blend of cultures. They decided to include the tabla section without knowing how hard it would be to find a tabla player.” By then, Sutanu had performed in several concerts in the area and Sütterlin tracked him down. “It was the first time I received the scores of a composition,” Sutanu ji said.
The concept was so novel to the audience that Sutanu had to start out with a demonstration. What’s more, the orchestra had managed only three rehearsals with their tabla player. “They are world class musicians who could adapt to the different kinds of compositions and the nature of the instrument,” Sutanu explains.
