Performances run June 22-25 at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis.
Amateur musician Padma Wudali recommends heading to Hilde Amphitheatre in Plymouth tonight for "Maithree" (that's Sanskrit for "friendship").

Wudali says the result — which combines veena, cello, clarinet and drums — is a celebration of cultural differences, and the beauty they can create together.
