Niladri Kumar Sitar / Zitar
Yashwant Vaishnav Tabla

World-renowned sitar player and maverick musician, Niladri Kumar, performs in Liverpool for the first time alongside virtuoso percussionist Yashwant Vaishnav.

Widely acknowledged as India's foremost sitar player, Niladri Kumar's musical prowess spans generations, rooted in a profound understanding of Indian Classical Music. Trained under his father and Guru, Pandit Kartick Kumar, a disciple of Pandit Ravi Shankar, he was heralded as a prodigy and has since pushed the boundaries of classical music. His sitar mastery, marked by dexterous double stops, whispering string bends, and rapid taans, sets him apart. Niladri's groundbreaking innovation, the "zitar" - a fusion of electric guitar and sitar - has created a unique rock guitar sound. Collaborating with legends like Zakir Hussain and John McLaughlin, his journey has left an indelible mark on the world of music.

Joining Niladri is maestro Indian percussionist Yashwant Vaishnav. Yashwant, celebrated as a 'wonder child' by audiences and music connoisseurs, embarked on his musical journey at the age of three. Guided by revered mentors, he promises an extraordinary musical synergy with Niladri Kumar's sitar, uniting tradition and innovation.

Don't miss the opportunity to witness these incredible artists as they continue to captivate audiences worldwide with their culturally rooted yet contemporary musical style.
