DYNAMIC DUOS IN DURHAM: RAGA BIHAG – Alap, Jod and Jhalla
John Stephens – Sarod, Viswas Chitnis – Sitar
NorthStar Church of the Arts, 220 W Geer St. Durham, NC 27701

FROM THE ARTISTS:
The Mallarmé duo grant is a unique opportunity for us to bring classical Hindustani music to your audience. Rather than incorporate a tabla player, we have chosen to offer a long-form Alap, Jod and Jhalla performance, which is increasingly rare to hear, though it is the true authentic heart and soul of traditional music from South Asia.
In our playing, we will seek to highlight the conversational nature of a melodic duet, as well as the interplay between improvisation and the well-defined structures of
traditional Indian classical music.

$10 suggested donation at the door. Cash or Credit Card

READ THE PRESS RELEASE: Mallarmé 2024 Dynamic Duos Announcement FINAL

What is Dynamic Duos? In the fall of 2020, Mallarmé’s board spearheaded a new directive to diversify offerings both musically and via the personnel who perform in our concerts. Couldn’t our performances better reflect our community while keeping a high standard of performance?

The goal of the Dynamic Duo Call for Talent is to discover new (or new to us) North Carolina musical talent and to expand on the style and genre of our usual programming. North Carolina musicians of any type, including jazz, folk, and rock were asked to apply, especially members of the LBGTQIA+, African American and Latinx communities. Applicants were asked to propose a 60-minute program and to provide artist bios and musical examples of the specific artists.  Performers were chosen on the strength of their proposed program, musical samples and, most importantly, the way they interact with one another. Four groups were picked to perform this year – 3 during June 2024 as part of the Dynamic Duo Mini-Festival, and the last group will perform in the fall.
