The London Sitarist - Sitar & Tabla Duo

This London Sitar player was awarded a scholarship to study Composition at Birmingham Conservatoire, where he began his training in Hindustani music on Sitar.

During his Masters at Goldsmiths, he sought to bring together the many strands of his practice. This involved interrogating legacies of empire that run through musical discourses and finding where to situate himself in relation to the flows of musical knowledge that have shaped his life.

The London Sitar player continues this work both as a research interest and as method for creative practice. He is also continuing his training in Hindustani music on sitar and vocals to further his development in the art form that, above all else, shapes the way he works.

He 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.
