Shubhendra Rao is one of India’s leading sitarists, having studied and lived with his Guru, Pandit Ravi Shankar, in the true Guru-Shishya tradition. An important part of his learning was accompanying his Guru in solo concerts and orchestras like Live in Kremlin and Ghanashyam in the UK. Shubhendra has performed at all the major music venues in India, Theatre de la ville at Paris, the WOMAD Festival in Guernsey, England. His international tours have taken him to USA, Canada, Europe and many Asian countries. A regular performer on radio and the national television, he is one of the very few artists to have been invited to audition by All India Radio and given an “A” grade.
“Shubhendra establishes a fine rapport, both with his music and his audience. His concerts are sensitive, aesthetically appealing and musically insightful. With a fine command over technique and innovative creativity, he evokes the various facets of the music and its moods, rendering a wholesome perspective and maturity far belying his years.”
