Jillian Samant

Jillian Samant is a musician who played recorders and the viola de gamba, like her musician-artist husband Mohan Samant, who played the Sarangi. She began playing with various amateur groups, who would meet one evening a week at their New York loft. Joint concerts would be held, with her group performing early Western music on various instruments, some of which can be seen in Mohan’s paintings.
