Dear friends,

It has been one year since the passing of Guruji, Pandit Sharda Sahai-ji. We all miss him so very much. It is very difficult to put in words. His educational organisation, Pandit Ram Sahai Sangit Vidyalaya has posted some photos and articles in tribute. Please click through to read more...

One year on, we remember the life and legacy of Pandit Sharda Sahai.

PANDIT SHARDA SAHAI was renowned as one of the greatest exponents of the Benares Baj and was instrumental in pioneering its development worldwide, most notably in Canada, America and the UK. He hailed from five generations of master musicians and whilst always faithful to the tradition of his ancestors he also was very much a musician of his time.

He was revered for his spellbinding solo performances, East-West collaborations, and skill and generosity as a teacher. His legacy continues through his disciples and students worldwide and in the Pandit Ram Sahai Sangeet Vidyalaya which he founded in Benares in 1965; to ensure that those outside of the tradition could have access to education in Indian Music and the Performing Arts.
