Composer and Flautist Dean Evenson joins creative forces with Indian Sitar masters ‘Pandit’ Shivnath Mishra and Deobrat Mishra in this masterpiece of cultural blending.

The Mishras, a father and son duo from a musical family spanning seven generations, live in the holy city of Benares, India on the Ganges River. With passion and playfulness, they perform Ragas which are ancient patterns of melodic movement meant to evoke a certain mood or feeling.

The Mishras take traditional ragas and create their own remarkable improvisational compositions, adding a spirited call and response dynamic to their exquisite musical forms. Extending the boundaries of the traditional raga, Evenson’s silver flute weaves its spell and beautiful female voices, viola and natural sounds of India enhance the mood.

Pandit Shivnath Mishra and his family have descended from a prominent musical lineage of Benaras Gharana going back several generations. In order to preserve this heritage, so precious to India, and make it accessable to children, Pt. Mishra and his family decided to create the “Benaras Gharana Baccha (Children’s) Project.
