Unfortunately, Vinay’s Jetstar flight has been cancelled and he is unable to get to Melbourne
I am excited to announce Saikat Bhattacharya will now perform with me on his Sitar / which will give the evening a slight middle eastern sound.
Here is some information about
Saikat Bhattacharya has been playing the Sitar for over twenty-five years. Playing the sitar has been his passion and devotion.
At present, Saikat is a disciple of the world’s number one sitarist Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan. Saikat has made numerous public performances in India and Australia; he has regularly performed at the Woodford Folk Festival, Queensland Multicultural Music Festival, Queensland Conservatorium, programs of Multicultural Affairs Victoria, Melbourne Hindustani Classical Music Society, University of Melbourne, and several other public and private programs. Saikat’s first Guru - Pandit Manilal Nag, a veteran sitar maestro from Calcutta is a world-famous name in the world of Indian classical music. Saikat’s current Guru: Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan (the top sitarist in India) descends from six generations of sitarists 'the Sitar and Self are identical entities, and music is not just a discipline but life itself – vibrating and pulsating and full of colour'.
