Veena Chandra is an internationally renowned Sitar player, composer, teacher and choreographer. She is the founder and director of the Dance and Music School of India in Latham, NY (celebrating 31 years) where she teaches Indian classical music. She has been a faculty member at Skidmore College since 1990, teaching sitar in the Music Department. Since 2014 she is also the Artist Associate in Sitar at Williams College (MA). In 2019, she was awarded the NYSCA/NYFA Fellowship in music & sound. This prestigious award was for her continued work in preserving her tradition through her various endeavors.

Devesh Chandra’s approach to the tabla is the confluence of all the unique influences of his upbringing. Devesh believes the tabla has the rare ability, to very accurately convey a wide range of emotions. His innovative and imaginative approach makes his performances enthralling to both Western listeners and Indian classical purists.
