CAMDEN — Come out for an intimate evening of music from Benares, India, with world-renowned sitar master Deobrat Mishra, accompanied by Prashant Mishra on tabla. The concert is Tuesday, June 25, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at High Mountain Hall, 5 Mountain St.

Deobrat Mishra is an Indian sitar and surbahar master and a music composer. He is an exponent of the Benares Gharana school of Hindustani classical music. The son of Pandit Shivnath Mishra, a legend of sitar from this gharana, he has an energetic and innovative playing style, with typical features like selectivity, melody and rhythmic complexity.

In 2000, he received the award of Sur Mani in Mumbai. His many projects include music workshops, solo performances for radio and television, as well as world music programs with Indian and European artists. Moreover, he provides music lessons at the Academy of Indian Classical Music, the school he founded along with his father in 2006.

Tickets are $22 in advance; $25 at the door. All proceeds from the concert go toward Deobrat's music school in India, as well as charitable yoga programs in the United States.
