SITAR MASTER KARTIK SESHADRI PERFORMS ON APRIL 11



  World-renowned sitar master and music faculty member KARTIK SESHADRI performs April 11 at 7 pm at UCSD's Conrad Prebys Concert Hall. Kartik's CD "Sublime Ragas" was named one of the Top of the World Top 10 CDs by Songlines magazine. The Washington Post has praised his music for its "expressive beauty, rich tonal sensibility, and rhythmic intricacy." Kartik collaborates with world-renowned artists including Philip Glass, and he is dedicated to authentic Indian classical music as introduced to America in the sixties by his mentor Ravi Shankar. Kartik is a prolific composer whose Concerto #1 for Sitar and Chamber Orchestra received its world premiere in San Diego last October. He heads the Indian Classical Music program in the Department of Music at UCSD. For tickets to the April 11 concert, call the Department of Music Box Office: (858) 534-3448.
