Jonathan Voyer and Shawn Mativetsky (Montreal)



Dynamic performer Shawn Mativetsky is considered one of Canada's leading exponents of the tabla—the distinctive Indian talking drum—and is a pioneer in bridging the worlds of Western and Indian classical music. Musician and scholar, Jonathan Voyer plays the santoor, the Indian stringed instrument that is hammered like a dulcimer, and with dancer Julie Beaulieu, he forms the acclaimed duo performance Samskara, to promote transcultural dialogue through arts. Disciples of world-renowned masters, Mativetsky and Voyer have themselves become exponents of the great Hindustani Classical Music tradition. Their commitment to this ancient and refined art and their effort in spreading its appreciation results in concerts that delight both aficionados and neophytes alike.
