Just a heads up for you Bay Area residents.
This looks great and should be supported if you are in the area.

SADHANA Foundation is a member-based cooperative dedicated to preserving and promoting the classical music of South Asia throughout the world.

The South Asian Diasporic Hindustani Arts and Networking Association component of the Foundation focuses on connecting artists, individuals, institutions and organizations working in the field of Hindustani music.
