Niladri Kumar: Where Tradition meets Innovation (India)
18 Nov 2018, Sun, 7.30pm
Esplanade Concert Hall

Hailing from a lineage of five generations of sitar players, Niladri Kumar is a world renowned and global icon. Under the guidance, and numerous years of training from his Father and guru pandit Kartick Kumar, Niladri went on to revolutionise the style of sitar-playing and invented his own instrument, which he coined the zitar. He was the first to go electric.

Today, critics have praised his mastery of the sitar and his swiftness and magical ability to produce soul-stirring compositions which has earned him the nickname “Asian Hendrix”. Niladri leaves every music lover, orthodox or progressive, spellbound at his performances.

Joining him in this concert are Satyajit Talwalkar on the tabla, Agnelo Fernandes on the keyboard, and Shikhar Naad Qureshi on percussion. The concert showcases his slick ability to play the sitar and zitar.
