The sarod is an India stringed instrument, typically used in classical music, and known for its deep, weighty sound in contrast to the overtone-rich tones of the sitar. William Rees Hofmann has been studying and playing this evocative instrument for nine years under the tutelage Satyam Rai, engrossing himself further in his passion by spending six years living and studying in India with his teacher – and simultaneously earning himself a degree in Hindustani vocal. Not content with these credentials, Hofmann is currently a Masters student in sarod and rabab performance. This set at the recently launched Golden Lab Studios is therefore likely to be an experience like little else you’ve witnessed.
