The concert starts with a traditional composition played on the Violin accompanied by Indian percussion on the Ghatam or clay pot by brilliant artist S. V. Ramani from India. The concert then turns to involve two brilliant jazz performers, Osam Ezzeldin on Piano and Keyboard and MacArthur genius fellow Dafnis Preito on the drums, who play the compositions of Ganesh, led by the maestro himself playing the violin.

The featured guest dance choreographer-performer Portland’s Dr. Jayanthi Raman, has been commissioned to present a new piece on Goddess Shakti adding visual dimension to the concert.
