searching for artistes for a concert in Edinboro, PA, USA : LUSENET : : One Thread

I am a masters student and work for the Department of Cultural Affairs, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

We organise a Concert and Lecture series that feature various upcoming artistes and groups. For our 2001-2002 series , my director Dr.Cosmo Barbaro is interested in featuring an Indian Classical music (carnatic or Hindusthani ; vocal or instrumental )music concert.

I shall be extremely grateful if anybody can help me with some email adresses/phone numebers/ websites or links around Pennsylvania or nearby states where I could contact Indian classical music artisites and work out all the details. Thank you very much ,

Ms.Pushpa Ramachandran.

Hello , I'm Anil Prabhu & i own a company entitled "Dancing Dolphin" based in Central New Jersey that's in the business of distributing music for the N.American territory. I've been in the music industry for approximately 13 years in Bombay & have been in New Jersey since the last year & a half. Dancing Dolphin has exclusive contracts with approximately 20 Indian music cos prominent amongst which are reputable Indian cos such as BMG/Inreco/Geethanjali/Lahari/Sagar Sangeeth/Aditya etc & until now was only servicing wholesellers but am in the process of developing my website & have started servicing direct enquiries as i find that there is a genuine lack of maturity to the retail environment as regards Indian music. From the cos that i represent,quite a few are from the South & hence have an array of carnatic/devotional/sanskrit shlokas etc. I have noticed from this forum that there are quite a few queries pertaining to the non availability of carnatic titles & am willing to give it a shot in trying to obtain the same for them. Kindly revert with enquiries at my tel # is 732- 6989880. Warm regards, Anil Prabhu.
