Hi everyone, I still haven't bought my sitar yet (gathering money/selling some guitar and xbox equipment on craigslist) I'll be moving to the Orlando area next month, and I was wondering if anyone knows any teachers or has any ICM contacts in the area? I've been learning what I can via internet without my instrument, and I've been playing a crappy Yaman on my violin :wink: I can't wait to get started taking lessons :mrgreen:

Pandit Krishna Mohan Bhatt: He comes from a family of musicians in Jaipur. His father, the late Shashi Mohan Bhatt, a sitarist of great repute and a professor at the University of Rajasthan.
In his teens, Krishna’s musical grooming was further enhanced by many years of study under the tutelage of his Guru Pt. Ravi Shankar, and musicians Pt. Nikhil Banerjee and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, who had a strong impact on Krishna's musical growth.While developing his own individual style, Krishna’s music was greatly influenced by twentieth century stalwarts such as the vocalists Amir Khan, Bade Gulam Ali Khan, Abdul Karim Khan, Begum Akhtar, Shobha Gurtu as well as folk singers of Rajasthan. Krishna’s repertoire in performance includes a wide variety of rare and old traditional compositions from these masters of music.
Krishna Bhatt has received numerous awards and honors including the Sangeet Kalaratna (Jewel of Music) in 2009.
In addition to performing Hindustani classical music, Bhatt has also performed and recorded with the American composer Terry Riley (working on the score for the Alain Tanner film No Man's Land), Zakir Hussain, the Kronos Quartet, Jody Stecher, jazz saxophonist George Brooks, and Rajasthani folk musicians. He divides his time between Jaipur, Rajasthan and New York City, where he continues to perform and teach.

Hope to see you,


Bharti Chokshi
