World-renowned sitar player and maverick musician, Niladri Kumar, performs in Liverpool for the first time alongside virtuoso percussionists Kousic Sen and 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, 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, Kousic Sen, and the prodigious tabla player, Yashwant Vaishnav. Kousic Sen, a highly acclaimed tabla artist, enchants with his sublime tabla rhythms. Renowned for his extraordinary talent, Kousic Sen has graced stages with India's most illustrious classical musicians, captivating global audiences with his rhythmic finesse and artistry. Meanwhile, Yashwant Vaishnav, 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.
