Taranath is a 1999-2000 recipient of the Indian government's
highest award in the arts--the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award--given in recognition of outstanding achievement in the field
of Hindustani instrumental music. A distinguished disciple of
Maestro Ali Akbar Khan, Taranath masterfully combines the depth
and rigor of the tradition of Hindustani classical music with
an inspired imagination and emotional intensity in his performances.
Kaushal is an outstanding tabla artist who is well known for
his rich tone and clarity in performance. His numerous recordings
include Ravi Shankar in Venice, Farewell My Friend (with
Ravi Shankar), and Passages (with Ravi Shankar and Philip
Glass). National Geographic has also recorded his tabla for
the soundtrack to the documentary Man Eaters of North India.
This concert is funded by the Ali Akbar Khan Endowment for
Classical Indian Music and by the Kamil and Talat Hasan Endowed
Chair for Classical Indian Music at UCSC. For more information,
