Dushyanth SridharCarnatic Indian vocalists Sri. Dushyanth Sridhar (pictured) and Sangeeta Upanyasam perform on Sunday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m. Co-sponsored by Sacramento Aradhana.

Dushyanth Sridhar is one of the most sought after speakers on Sanatana Dharma. He is gifted with a pleasing voice and delightfully enhances his Harikatha with appropriate, beautifully rendered music. His erudition and his ability to connect with the young and the old has been universally acclaimed. He is a well-known face among viewers through his discourses in Indian television, and has an audience following on YouTube with over a million views.


Orquesta La Moderna TradicionPerforming on Thursday, October 27 at 8:00 p.m. is Orquesta La Moderna Tradición. The ensemble bursts with the sweet yet powerful sound of the Afro-Cuban charanga orchestra, which features violins and woodwinds interlocking with driving afro-Cuban rhythms. Since 1996, the 11-piece La Moderna Tradición has thrilled audiences across the country with a mix of contemporary timba-infused arrangements guaranteed to get you on your feet and traditional danzones that transport you back to the Havana social clubs of the 1950s. La Moderna Tradición has performed at Lincoln Center in New York, the Smithsonian Institution, The San Francisco Jazz Festival, the Telluride Jazz Festival, and many others — their tours have taken them from Alaska to El Paso and abroad.
