Z Space and The Chhandam School of Kathak along with Leela Dance, presents Continuum, a two-day festival of North Indian classical music and dance.
Continuum represents a showcase of world art at its pinnacle, immersing audiences into India’s rich, soulful classical music and captivating kathak dance. Continuum shines a spotlight on a new generation of young masters who bring a fresh lens, contemporary voice, and new dimension to these ancient art forms.The festival is focusing on featuring musicians and dancers in solo performances, the apex of classical Indian art. Artists like the Late Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Pandit Ravi Shankar, Pandit Chitresh Das, and many others planted deep seeds in the West, especially the Bay Area, for Indian classical art to flourish.
The festival is also rare in its formatting as each of the four distinct concerts are a double bill of a music solo and a kathak dance solo, featuring a different solo instrument in each show - sitar, violin, bansuri (Indian flute), tabla, and vocals.
