Sangeet Millennium, founded (2006) and led by internationally acclaimed sitarist/teaching artist/creative culture-worker Amie Maciszewski, is a collective/project ensemble that presents South-Asian music for the world, performing repertoires that seamlessly combine traditional South-Asian (classical/folk/devotional), Indo-jazz fusion, and/or worldbeat. Comprised of Amie + 1-4 artists, Sangeet Millennium Ensemble offers theme concerts, lecture-demonstrations, and interactive workshops/master classes tailored to diverse, intergenerational audiences. Topics include: South-Asian Music for the World; Strings/Songs/Skins Along the Silk Road; ‘Raag/Rasa/Rang’: Feeling the Color of South-Asian Sound/Music; Songs of South-Asian Seasons; Raga/Jazz/Bollywood. A studied musician with over a decade’s immersion training in India (Santiniketan, Kolkata) and a career entering its fifth decade, Dallas-based Amie brings the authenticity of deep cultural experience and connection to Sangeet Millennium’s musical offerings, and proficiency in Bengali-Hindi-Urdu. NM Arts Division, Austin Cultural Arts, Dallas OAC, TCA, M-AAA, NEA, and ATT-PAC have supported Amie’s/Sangeet Millennium’s work. They placed twice in the Austin Chronicle’s Texas Top Ten Worldbeat Bands category. For her cross-cultural musical contributions, Amie received the Gandharva Award from Hindustan Arts/Music Society (Burdwan, India, 2014) and felicitation from Lahore (Pakistan) Mozang Rotary Club (2016), Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology (2002), and Austin Cultural Arts’ “We All Belong” initiative (2023).
