Terry Riley will give a concert of evening ragas in the Kirana style as
taught to him by India's master vocalist, Pandit Pran Nath.
One of India's greatest classical vocalists, Pandit Pran Nath
(1918-1996), was mentor and teacher of Terry Riley for 26 years. Pandit
Pran Nath introduced the tradition of Hindustani classical vocal music
to America when he arrived here in 1970. Riley, now 71 years old (or
young) -- is a virtuoso keyboard performer and composer of
extraordinary note -- has been coming to Portland annually for the past
decade to teach and present recitals of North Indian Classical Vocal
music in the Kirana style as taught to him by Pandit Pran Nath. This
concert marks Riley's decade of service to his Guru, to students and
music lovers in Portland.
