Soulful Sitar – Smt Anupama Bhagwat
The team behind Sangeet Mela are delighted to host brilliant Bangalore-based sitarist, Anupama Bhagwat for an evening of Soulful Sitar.
Tabla accompaniment by Shen Flindell.
Anupama Bhagwat is an internationally acclaimed, refreshingly versatile sitarist. She is a leading disciple of Late Pt. Shri Bimalendu Mukherjee (father of Pt. Shri Budhaditya Mukherjee) the disciple of Late Ustad Enayat Khan. Playing in Imdadkhani Gharana style, she is one of the finest who has acquired the finesse and technical nuances of the Gayaki Style while bringing out its lyrical beauty and subtly nuanced style modelled upon the human voice with the emotive cadences of sitar.
Since being initiated into the Benares Gharana of tabla by one of the great old masters of the style in 1994, Shen Flindell has grown to become one of Australia’s leading tabla players. He is the accompanist of choice for Indian classical artists visiting Brisbane, best known for his beautiful sound and supportive accompaniment.
