Welcome and thanks for your visit!

I am an Australian based sarod player and ethnomusicologist trained in the guru shishya parampara of Hindustani music by Pandit Ashok Roy, Professor Sachindranath Roy and Dr Ashok Ranade over many years in India and Australia. Here you can find some scribblings about my background, upcoming and recent performances, sound files, academic research background, publications and other musical activities.

Whilst firmly committed to the tradition of Hindustani music and its performance, as an ethnomusicologist my musical interests are wide and extend to traditional, contemporary and intercultural music around the globe. Our trio Rasa Duende explores meeting points between Hindustani and Flamenco musics. It was nominated for an ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Award) in 2013.
