About the Concert
At the core of Indian arts is a sense that we all can tap into something greater than ourselves. In practice, Indian arts has been historically seen as an amalgamation of exclusive spaces, not all necessarily bad. Hidayat explores these through his own lens of the sitar and the universal connection music can create in this year’s Drive East.
The Quarantine Effect
Music and the connection it can create with the live setting is of utmost importance to musicians like Hidayat Khan who draw from the dialogue between audience and performer. While the quarantine has prohibited the in person theatre experience, Hidayat Khan works to create this type of special ambience as he live-streams from La Mama theatre in New York City.
