Sitar Concert by Pandit Nayan Ghosh

Sitar is one of the world's most profound and virtuosic instrumental traditions. Pandit Nayan Ghosh is regarded as one its greatest living performers. His fluid tone, depth of feeling, and vast repertoire have made him one of the world's leading sitarists. Pandit Nayan Ghosh's unparalleled musical talent has allowed him to become not only a renowned sitar player but also one of India's top-ranking tabla players, a nearly unprecedented feat in Indian classical music. 

Pandit Nayan Ghosh was trained by his father, the legendary Padmabhushan Nikhil Ghosh. In addition to his father, Pandit Nayan Ghosh has accompanied and received inspiration from many of the all-time greats, such as his uncle Pandit Pannalal Ghosh, Pandit Nikhil Banerjee, Ustad Vilayat Khan and Pandit Buddhadev Das Gupta. 

He will be accompanied on the tabla by the remarkable tabla prodigy Ishaan Ghosh, who is the son and disciple of Pandit Nayan Ghosh.
