I present to you "Swami Bodhi Aseem"
I would be less likely to make fun of him if he did not refer to himself as "Sitar Master".
You have to call BS on someone who calls himself "Swami" and Sitar Master" without the slightest evidence of this being the case, especially when they produce and post mounds of evidence to the contrary.
A "Sitar Master" he is not.
You wont be able to listen for long, but it is all gibberish anyway, so no real loss.
Just thought this was funny.

Here is the list of his videos:

This one is my Fav.

It is truly is inspiring to hear such a great master of the instrument!

One of the recommended videos on the sidebar was "Symptoms of Brain Tumors"...
Somehow that seems remarkably well suited! :wink:

Here I was dicking around all those first few weeks with a sitar on exercises and, heck, even actual raga forms, when I could have been a world-renowned master already!!! D'oh!

It just gets on my nerves when a terrible musician, with little or no Sitar experience, labels himself a "Sitar Master".
I bet he thought that sitar is so rare that no one would ever call him on his BS.
It is very unfortunate that his videos have comments blocked.
I would love to give him a little verbal slap or two.
It is odd to me that someone would spend so much time trying to glorify their own sitar play, while at the same time disrespecting the actual masters of the instrument.

I will give him one thing.
Even as terrible as he is, he is still better than Chinmoy.
But that is not saying much.

good advice that has been passed on to me - don't listen to bad music

I would advise everyone to avoid listening to this guy's music, unfortunately even after a couple of seconds music like this leaves an indelible stain on one's mind, trying to rate it or analyse it is a bit like trying to rate a nasty car crash in terms of a visual impression, once you look you have uncovered the abyss of horror that you have to then process and learn to cope with... best not to... not even as an intellectual exercise... or for a laugh...
