Event description
Joel ‘Veena’ Eisenkramer, presents a concert of traditional North Indian evening ragas.

About this Event

Joel plays the 20-stringed Indian slide guitar and will be accompanied on tabla (TBA). Joel has spent the last 11 years studying and performing Hindustani classical music, traveling back and forth between his native southern Vermont and India to learn in the traditional Guru-Shishya (student-disciple) oral tradition. First having studied 10 years with master Indian slide guitarist, Dr. Ranjan Kumar of Delhi (disciple of Pt Vishwa Mohan Bhatt), Joel is now receiving advanced training from sarod maestro Pt Alok Lahiri of Kolkata in the Maihar gharana style of instrumental music.

Joel’s performances have been noted for their beauty and accuracy in representing classical Indian music while his engaging explanations and demonstrations of the instrument and music allow everyone in the audience a window inside understanding and appreciating North Indian classical music.

Some of his prestigious performances have included the Indian Council for Cultural Relations in Delhi, National Gallery of Modern Art Bangalore, the Ekal Ka Rann festival in Gujarat, and the Swar Deep Yagya in Moradabad. In the Netherlands, Joel has performed at the Willim Twee Concert Hall in Den Boesch and at Codarts Rotterdam World Music Conservatory. He has also toured extensively in his native USA. These concerts included lecture demonstrations at the California Institute for Integral Studies and California College of the Arts.

Having released three studio albums, Joel Veena’s music has been featured on Radio New Zealand, BBC Introducing and NPR.

Dedicated to spreading the love and understanding of Indian classical music and Indian slide guitar, Joel is an artist who seeks to open the doors for listeners to share in the joy and wonder of Raga music.'
