About

New Delhi's husband-and-wife team of sitarist Shubhendra Rao and cellist Saskia Rao-de Haas weaves together the seemingly diverse traditions of European and Indian music. In order to comply with Indian classical music's stringent requirements, Rao-de Haas adapted her cello, adding one additional playing string and ten sympathetic strings, creating the Indian Cello, the only such instrument in existence. The duo plays both classical Indian music and original compositions that are at once traditional and avant-garde.

Part of maximum INDIA.
