Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt is a musical genius who has adapted the western guitar to Indian classical music. His performances on the 'Mohan Veena' are filled with pristine and delicate phrasing, as well as passionate and fiery passages. He has collaborated with many musicians from other genres including Ry Cooder. Their album 'A Meeting by the River' won a Grammy Award in 1994.
He will be presenting a program of Hindustani classical music with Pandit Subhen Chatterjee, a senior tabla player from the Lucknow Gharana tradition. Subhenji's study of the intricacies and beauty of other Gharanas informs his playing, making for a delightful listening experience.
