The London & South West Sitarist - Solo Sitarist or Sitar & Tabla Duo

The London & South West Sitarist divides his time between Bristol and London so is available for bookings in both areas.

He was awarded a scholarship to study Composition and Cello at Birmingham Conservatoire, where he began his training in Hindustani music on Sitar.

During his Masters at Goldsmiths, he began transferring Sitar technique to his Cello playing and now performs North Indian Classical music on both instruments. 

He is a student of the highly respected Sarod player, Ustad Irfan Muhammad Khan - the Khalif (Chief) of the Lucknow-Shahjahanpur Gharana.

The London & South West Sitarist performs regularly, in numerous contexts from weddings and restaurants to festivals and concert halls. In composition, performance and improvisation, his vocal, cello and sitar techniques overlap, creating a musical voice that is easy to recognise for its melodically intricate and texturally visceral qualities.

Price is based on a solo performance.
