Vishwa Mohan Bhatt

Part of Spring-Summer 2023

This event has passed.

Grammy Award winner Vishwa Mohan Bhatt has mesmerized the world with his pristine, delicate and yet fiery music.

Hailing from Jaipur, Rajasthan, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt’s family has performed Indian classical music for more than 3 centuries.

Vishwa Mohan Bhatt firmly established his instrument within the sphere of mainstream Indian classical music through his outstanding musicianship. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt’s new invention, the Mohan Veena, is a modified version of the steel guitar which blends the Hawaiian slide guitar with traditional Indian sitar, sarod, and vina techniques.

With performances in more than 80 countries across numerous prestigious venues and festivals, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt has become an international cultural ambassador of Indian music. He has recorded numerous albums and was awarded the Grammy Award for his album A Meeting by the River with Ry Cooder (1993). Other accolades include Padma Bhushan, Padma Shri and the Sangeet Natak Academy from the Indian Government for his contribution to music.

Pandit Subhen Chatterjee’s tabla playing style is based onthe Lucknow gharana, one of the six main tabla styles of Indian classical music.

He was taught was by the illustrious tabla maestro Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri. Uniquely, Pandit Chatterjee learned the intricacies of other gharanas and has thus incorporated this into his playing style. Over the last four decades Pandit Chatterjee has accompanied musical legends including Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Vidushi Girija Devi and Pandit Jasraj. Pandit Chatterjee’s album Artistry was nominated for a Grammy Award (2002).

This concert is part of a national tour presented by Asian Arts Agency.
