Sugata Marjit

On 7th May I had the opportunity to take part in the Bengali Society of Queensland's celebrations of Rabindranath Tagore's 150th "birthday". The concert opened with performances by Namita Debroy and her Kathak dance school, and concluded with a vocal performance by visiting artist Prof Sugata Marjit, whom I accompanied on tabla. Sugata-ji has a most magnificent voice and it was a very enjoyable performance of khayals in teentaal and ektaal.
