Experience the music and culture of India through rhythm and dance.

Talavya and Jin Won return to LA to raise funds for the Indic Foundation at Claremont Lincoln University – a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Indic art, culture, philosophy, and religions through education.

Lightning fast finger play, split-second perfection, and charisma come together for an electrifying rhythmic ride with tabla ensemble Talavya. Composed by rhythm maestro Pandit Divyang Vakil, Talavya pays homage to hundreds of years of tradition and India’s rhythmic prowess, while invigorating the art of tabla with energy, creating scores of new fans for Indian classical percussion and tabla music.

South Korean artist Jin Won is an accomplished kathak dancer, and tabla player, and ambassador for Indian classical arts.  Hailed by the New York Times as an “exuberant dancer…whose musicality transformed her dancing into something primal,” Won infuses her own creativity into her performance.  A strong, yet graceful performer, her dance recital incorporates both traditional and contemporary forms of the Indian classical dance kathak.
