The Oasis of Music returns to the downstairs chapel of the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul with sitarist David Pontbriand, who will carry out at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 15, at 122 Ash St., in Lewiston.

Pontbriand started his journey with the sitar in 1973. His story is an exception to the rule, in that he’s totally self-taught. Pontbriand’s Music of Sitar is pushed by an intuitive and emotive strategy that’s deeply private, and but shows components of classical Indian varieties and magnificence.

His authentic and primarily spontaneous compositions for sitar are freely interpretive, whereas rooted within the classical ragas of north India.

He will probably be taking part in an all new carbon fiber sitar, crafted in North Carolina, by luthier Harry Shaffer, a pioneer in creating a novel twenty first century iteration of the sitar.

The Oasis of Music, now in its fifth season, is a weekly music collection of quick performances of roughly thirty minutes in size, working from September to Might. Admission is free, with donations accepted.

COVID restrictions of optionally available mask-wearing and social distancing are noticed, with a most variety of attendees set at 35.
