Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt

Creator of the MOHAN VEENA and the winner of the GRAMMY AWARD, Vishwa Mohan Bhat has mesmerized the world with his pristine pure, delicate yet fiery music. 

Being the foremost disciple of Pt. Ravi Shankar, Vishwa Mohan belongs to that elite body of musicians which traces its origin to the Moughal emperor Akbar's court musician TANSEN and his guru the Hindu Mystic Swami Haridas.

He invented the MOHAN VEENA, at the tender age of 17 and established it at the top most level in the mainstream of Indian Classical Music scenario, thereby proving the essence of his name VISHWA (meaning the world) and MOHAN (meaning charmer). Vishwa Mohan Bhatt has attracted international attention by his successful indianisation of the western Hawaiian guitar with his perfect assimilation of sitar, sarod & veena techniques, by giving it a evolutionary design & shape and by adding 14 more strings helping him to establish the instrument MOHAN VEENA to unbelievable heights. 

It was no surprise that Vishwa Mohan with his sheer virtuosity won the highest music award of the world, the GRAMMY AWARD IN 1994 along with Ry Cooder for their World Music Album, 'A MEETING BY THE RIVER' enhancing his celebrity status not only as a star performer but also as an improviser and a soulful composer.

Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt has been conferred the Padma Bhushan, Padma Shri, Grammy as well as many other honors, besides Music Natak Academy, Music Scientist, National Tansen Award, Tantric Emperor, Rajasthan Ratna and Global Music Award twice. The prestigious St. Peterburg University has given him the honorary degree.

 

Aditya Kalyanpur is a tabla (Indian hand-drums) maestro who has worked with some of the most legendary individuals in the music industry. His playing can be heard on Katy Perry’s “Legendary Lovers” from her multi-platinum album “Prism,” he’s recorded with The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, and he’s performed with Oscar- and GRAMMY-winning composer A.R. Rahman (“Slumdog Millionaire). A child prodigy, Aditya studied tabla under the aegis of the legendary Ustad Allah Rakha, and performed in collaboration with his son, two-time GRAMMY-winner Ustad Zakir Hussain.
