Shastra Festival 2015: Shawn Mativetsky plays Paquet “Les Arbres Celestes”

Last April, Shastra put on its inaugural Festival of Indian/Western crossover music. We had a wonderful day of performances from top artists at (le) poisson rouge in New York City, and we also streamed the festival live for our audiences around the world. If you missed this event, or if you want to hear it again, you’re in luck: Over the next few months, every Friday, Shastra will be releasing videos from the entire festival on our YouTube Channel, so you can enjoy these performances any time.

First up: Shawn Mativetsky’s performance of Bruno Paquet’s work for tabla and electronics, “Les Arbres Celestes”. A beautiful crystalline piece of music that dazzles the senses. Take a listen:
