Pradhanica Residency at Illinois

The School of Music is happy to welcome the ensemble Pradhanica for their residency 31 January-2 February. Experts in Kathak dance and Hindustani music, the members of the group have each taken a unique path to finding their voice in Indian music. We look forward to attending their concerts and workshops, and to working with them in our classes!
