Concert: Pancha Tattva – Opening Holland India Muziek Festival
The opening of the Holland India Muziek Festival was conducted with the excellent concert: Pancha Tattva. Artists from The Netherlands, Aura Rascón (bansuri), Prewien Pandohi-Mishre (vocals), and Yama Sarshar (tabla) brought us an ode to Mother Earth. Pancha Tattva (the 5 elements) stand for Earth, Water, Air, Ether and Fire. Every musical instrument represents one of these elements and the final part was a harmonious combining of all the instruments and singing where it ended with Fire as the grand finale.
Meet the Artists
Yama started playing the tabla from the tender age of 2 years, learning under his father Ustad Sarshar. Yama then received his Taleem from the Late Ustad Alla Rakha Khan Saeb, Ustad Zakir Hussain and he currently spends most of his learning under Ustad Fazal Qureshi. Yama’s performances are high in demand throughout the world.
