Attenborough Arts Centre


"Spontaneous, versatile, grounded" The Hindu


"...full of substance, fluent ease and confidence" www.gurdain.com

"...incredible talent". R. Girouard

Program: Ragas Bageshree and Jhinjhoti, two great evening raags. 

Anupama Bhagwat is one of the top sitar players in India and one of the most brilliant sitar players of her generation. She is a disciple of sitar legend, Bimalendu Mukherjee, father and guru of one of the greatest living sitar players, Budhaditya Mukherjee (who, in his youth, was likened to Jimmy Hendrix for his extraordinary virtuosity). She has performed in the US, both east and west coasts, Switzerland, Paris and at the most prestigious Indian music festival in London at the Southbank, The Darbar Festival. She is regularly invited to perform at the Dover Lane Music Conference, one of the most important music festivals in India. Anupama visited us in 2016 and thrilled the audience with a magnificent performance of Raag Malkauns. This is a talent not to be missed.
