Chhandayan Center for Indian Music presents a Sitar concert with Maestro:
Pt. Nayan Ghosh.
Pandit Nayan Ghosh is an Indian Tabla & Sitar player. Nayan Ghosh was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra to the legendary Tabla Maestro Padmabhushan Pandit Nikhil Ghosh, the founder of Sangeet Mahabharati. He was trained by his father, and practiced under the watchful eye of Ustad Ahmedjan Thirakwa, who lived with them for many years towards the end of his life in Mumbai. Nayan Ghosh is regarded by many as the greatest performer of the traditional tabla repertoire of the Farrukhabad style. He has accompanied many of the all-time greats, such as Pandit Ravi Shankar, Pandit Nikhil Banerjee, Ustad Vilayat Khan and Pandit Buddhadev Das Gupta. Presently he is also working as guest music professor in Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, where he teaches tabla, sitar and vocal music. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6705912558216557503#docid=6705516992911074777
