The Unitarian Church of Los Alamos (UCLA) presents “A Night of Hindustani Music and Traditional Indian Storytelling” with Mark and Terra Choplin at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 7.
Mark and Terra Choplin are devotional singers, trained in India, who specialize in traditional Indian story-telling, and classical Indian instrumental, or Hindustani music. They will be presenting the ancient story of the Hindu holiday Holi; the story of the boy, Prahlada, in a way of telling called Katha.
Part of the program will be dedicated to classical music, playing ragas and talas, using the strings (sarod and tamboura), keyboard (harmonium), and drums (tabla, dolak, pakhwaj). Tickets are $10 at the door, and children 10 and under are admitted at no charge.
