This weekend, the Timucua Arts Foundation is broadcasting two very eclectic shows on their Timucua Live YouTube Channel that are well worth some quality couch time.

On Friday night at 7:30 p.m. you have a chance to see the a 2019 duo performance from David Bjella and Hannah Sun. Bjella is a professor of the cello at UCF and a seasoned touring and recording artist in various ensembles from around the country. Sun is a musician, teacher and composer who is also an Adjunct Professor at nearby Stetson University. The program of French and Russian chamber music includes selections from Debussy, Messiaen, and Shostakovich.

And 7:30 p.m. Sunday night brings you a performance of evening ragas – lush drones meant to be performed in the twilight hours  from 2019 courtesy vocalist/sitar player Kanada Narahari and tabla player Shankh Lahiri. Lahiri is a well-regarded Central Floridian ambassador for world music and master tabla player. Dr. Narahari is a musician and scholar who strives to combine the healing possibilities of music with his medical practice.
