“Summer Rain” is a new production, with music developed and performed by Zeitgeist with composer and veena virtuoso Nirmala Rajasekar. A blend of Indian classical music (Carnatic tradition) and Western classical new music, Summer Rain features five musical compositions interspersed with discussion and interactive opportunities designed to bring audiences a greater understanding of the two traditions.
