Shri Partha Bose is a widely acknowledged Sitar player and a much respected artist in the arena of comtemporary Hindustani Classical Music. Partha was initiated to the Sitar at the age of six and thereafter underwent intensive training in the tradition of Guru-Shishya parampara under the tutelage of Pandit Monoj Shankar of the famous Maihar Gharana.

Partha is a tremendous ambassador for Hindustani Classical Music. His casual style is most welcoming to the neophyte. During his performance he takes time to discuss the subtleties of his music. This explanation opens the door to a rich musical world. For more information about Partha, see www.thesitarist.com.

Partha is accompanied by Debu Nayak, a master tabla player. Their musical interchange during the performance is a pleasure to witness. For more information about Debu, see www.tablaguy.com.
