Asian Arts Agency presents National UK Tour with GRAMMY-winning Slide Guitarist, Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.

Accompanied on tabla by Pandit Subhen Chatterjee

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. He firmly established his instrument within the sphere of mainstream Indian classical music through his outstanding musicianship.

With performances in more than 80 countries across numerous prestigious venues and festivals, including Eric Clapton’s Cross Road’s Guitar Festival, Vishwa Mohan has become an international cultural ambassador of Indian music.

He has recorded numerous albums and was awarded the GRAMMY for his album A Meeting by the River with Ry Cooder (1993). The Indian Government awarded Vishwa Mohan the prestigious Padma BhushanPadma Shri and Sangeet Natak Academy.

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.

“One of the greatest and most expressive slide players in the world.” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine

“Vishwa Mohan Bhatt is the king of Slide guitar (Mohan Veena)” – Boston Globe (U.S.A.)

Pandit Subhen Chatterjee

Pandit Subhen Chatterjee’s tabla playing style is based on the 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.

“A great performer …… very pleasing personality on stage.” – Washington Post
