Shubhendra Rao and Saskia Rao-de Haas will perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the McCoy Studio Theater.

A protege of world-renowned maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar, Rao is described as a "brilliant light for the tradition of the sitar." In this program, "East Marries West," the celebrated husband-wife duo of sitar maestro Rao and cello virtuoso Haas create music that combines the rich texture of classical Indian music with Western classical music, folk traditions from different parts of the world, and exciting rhythms that leave audiences and critics are spellbound. "Movingly meditative," said The New York Times.

The duo's effortless musical communication and improvisation reveal artistic depth and technical virtuosity, lit by the energy and freshness of their ideas.
