Global Ektara (Saturday Oct 20)

Brings 7 star performers on a single stage for the first time in America. Led by Bonnie Chakraborty of Krosswindz/CokeStudio/A.R.Rehman fame, the band features famed folk singers Kartik Das Baul & Usri Banerjee, Keshav Iyengar on Bass, Cactus ace guitarist Ratul Ray, Sudipto Paul on keyboards, and drummer par excellence – Gaboo of Lakkhichhara. What started as a urban folk revolution in the 70’s with Gautam Chattopadhyay’s Mohiner Ghoraguli, Bonnie has pioneered and refined for the new generation with this musical extravaganza. Don’t miss “Prithibita Naki”…
