It is with a heavy heart that we announce the untimely passing of Broto Roy (EMI India recording artist) a local VA tabla percussionist and composer. Originally from Kolkata, West Bengal India, Broto was a guest musician who performed with guest dancer Manish Chauhan of Peridance Contemporary Dance Company at Bowen McCauley Dance Co. 25th and Final Season show at the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater on September 14, 2021. His wife, Teresa Gibbs acknowledged that the September 14 performance was not only his final but a bright star for him in 2021. So many performing artists are still working their way back to the stage. And, with much thanks to Lucy Bowen McCauley and Helen Chamberlin, we are so grateful that he was able to perform with BMDC. We cannot possibly articulate his 30+ year career but please see his Bio, extensive music repertoire and accolades at https://www.brotoroy.com/.
RIP Broto Roy.
