Sandeep Das (tabla) & Mike Block (cello/vocals) are a dynamic, cross-genre duo that originally met as members of Yo-Yo Ma’s Grammy Award-winning Silkroad Ensemble. Featuring a combination of the tabla (a pair of Indian drums used in Hindustani Classical music), cello (a bowed string instrument used in European classical music), as well as vocals (both rhythmic and melodic), this energetic duo has been performing since 2013, sharing their music throughout America and India via tours and residencies, and even on the stage of Carnegie Hall. Their debut album includes compositions from Western Classical and North Indian Hindustani traditions, adaptations of music from around the world, and several of their own original compositions.

The Spurlock Museum acknowledges support from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
