A globally admired tabla guru will perform on Friday (September 15) in Surrey. Pandit Yogesh Samsi’s concert at Centre Stage, Surrey City Hall is entitled “Moving in Time: A Journey of Rhythm”.

The Delhi-born musician mentored for more than two decades under Ustad Allah Rakha Khan—the father of one of the world’s famous tabla masters, Zakir Hussain. Samsi’s website states that he has mastered a vast repertoire in the Punjab Gharana. It adds that he has also revived lost partition-era treasures while reflecting his mentor’s philosophy and rhythmic essence.

Samsi, a tabla scholar, is committed to supporting a new generation of tabla performers.

In addition to the Friday concert, Samsi will also engage in conversation at 8 p.m. on Thursday (September 14) in the Program Room at the Surrey Arts Centre.

The Indian Classical Music Society of Vancouver and Surrey Civic Theatres are presenting Samsi at both events. For more information and tickets to both events, visit Samsi’s website.
