Kolkata born, Mumbai based, Purbayan Chatterjee, is one of the most exciting and brilliant sitar players from India alive today. He represents the Maihar Gharana (music style of training) of north Indian classical music which he learned from his father Parthapratim Chatterjee. He has performed internationally at venues and festivals such as the Royal Festival Hall, Sydney Opera House, WOMAD Festival, and Roskilde Festival. His vibrant playing is inspired by the sound of the late, legendary sitarist Nikhil Banerjee and the beautiful tone of Purbayan’s playing is the reason why Indian classical musicians such as Zakir Hussain, Shankar Mahadevan, Kala Ramnath have collaborated and toured with him. Accompanying on tabla is gifted young virtuoso Ojas Adhiya who has been taking the art of playing tabla to new heights. Ojas, a former child prodigy, has been supporting the top instrumentalists and vocalists of India over the last decade including Shivkumar Sharma, Hariprasad Chaurasia, Anoushka Shankar, and more.
The Masters of Indian Music series presents legends from the two primary forms of Indian classical music: the Northern Indian tradition of Hindustani classical music and the Southern Indian tradition of carnatic Indian classical music.
