About the Artists

Steve Oda

Maestro Steve Oda plays the sarode, a 25-stringed fretless lute which is regarded as one of the most popular and prominent instruments in classical Indian music. The deeply emotive and highly expressive sounds of the sarode make it among the most pleasant instruments to listen to, even if you know nothing about Indian music. Steve Oda is a senior disciple of the legendary maestro of the sarode Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, one of the most revered exponents of the classical music of India.

Ty Burhoe

Ty Burhoe plays the tabla, the melodic pair of drums of North India. Ty has been a disciple of the great tabla maestro, Ustad Zakir Hussain, since 1990. From that time forward, Ty has been wholly dedicated to music as a career and as a spiritual path. Known for his sensitive accompaniment, Ty is a sought after tabla artist who frequently collaborates with a wide range of musicians including Art Land, Bela Fleck, Walter Becker, Krishna Das, Steve Oda, Kala Ramnath, Kitaro, Bill Douglas, Bruce Dunlap, among many others.
