Presentation | November 11 | 4-6:30 p.m. |  UC Botanical Garden

Learn all about sitars and tamburas with instrument maker J. Scott Hackleman. For over 40 years Scott has been learning sitar, travelling to India, and making and repairing hundreds of Indian instruments for artists such as Ravi Shankar and institutions such as Cal Arts. Discover the woods used to make these instruments such as Tun (Toona ciliata), Sheesham (Dalbergia sisoo), and Ebony (Diospyros ebenum). Additionally, gourds will be discussed. This will be followed and interspersed with a sitar, tambura, and tabla performance by Joanna Mack (sitar) and Ferhan Quereshi (tabla).
