Episode 121 of 9XM SoundcastE is out! Our guest on this new episode is sitar maestro Purbayan Chatterjee. Purbayan, who is one of the topmost sitar maestros of the world, chats with Host Eva Bhatt about his musical training in the Senia Maihar Gharana, his love for the sitar and his various international collaborations.
In his latest album, ‘Unbounded – Abaad’, he bridges musical worlds with artists from India, Afghanistan, US and UK, merging local flavours of Latin, jazz, folk, country, Sufi tradition, Western and Hindustani classical music.
Global masters like Ustad Zakir Hussain (tabla), V. Selvaganesh (kanjira), U. Rajesh, Shankar Mahadevan (vocals), Deepak Pandit (violin), Béla Fleck (banjo), Jordan Rudess (keyboard) and many others are a part of this album.
Recipient of the Indian President Award and Aditya Vikram Birla Award, he talks about ‘Shastriya Syndicate’ – the first Indian classical band with a contemporary touch, how he blends different worlds in music and some more lessons for music lovers.
