Indian Musical Group Set to Play at UNO April 16
Omaha - The Indian musical group Sankara will perform at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) on Monday, April 16, at 8 p.m. in the Strauss Performing Arts Center. Tickets cost $15 for the public and $7 for students and seniors.
Sankara is currently touring the United States and features T.H. Subash Chandran on ghatam and konnakol. The ghatam is a clay pot from South India played as an instrument with fingers, hands and fingernails. Konnakol is the art of vocal percussion.
Sankara’s April 16 appearance is part of the UNO Department of Music’s Resonate Concert series.
“This is a unique opportunity to hear some amazing music from a master musician,” said Tomm Roland, coordinator of percussion studies and multicultural music at UNO. The ensemble also includes keyboards, violin, thavil (a barrel-shaped percussion instrument) and kanjira (Indian tambourine).
