Greetings,
I'm looking for pics of instruments constructed by Nitayanda, brother of Kanai Lal and teacher to MurariJi. According to S. Landsberg in the Asianarts Journal, Nitayanda was seminal to the design of the "modern sitar" and also is credited with building 4 to 5 rudra veenas. The accalaimed KL veens by Murari were made from the Nitayanda designs. I am particularly interested in any info on those veens and early sitars attributed to Nitayanda.
Thanks folks,
Abdullah
