We are most honored to host Sitar Maestro Partha Bose and tabla player Indranil Mallick again on their 2019 US tour.

It has been said of Partha Bose: "The hallmark of his music lies in the seamless integration of technical virtuosity and emotional expression at their highest levels." 

A widely acknowledged classical musician of the north Indian genre, Partha Bose has an uncanny ability to communicate with listeners world-wide through his sitar. Partha Bose has an evolving style that blends tradition with imagination. He touches the inner depths of a raga (melodic scale) and tala (rhythmic cycle) by fascinating improvisations. Partha Bose has been featured in major music festivals in India and abroad, as well as workshops and lecture-demonstrations for reputed universities for more than twenty years. Thus he has contributed substantially to the rising graph of Indian culture and music in the global arena. Partha Bose visualizes music as a universal language which reminds us of our shared humanity. He divides his time between his home in Kolkata, India and the rest of the world.

Indranil Mallick is a tabla player of rare skill, playing both as a soloist and accompanist. Born to a family of genuine music connoisseurs, he received his initial training in tabla when he was only five from his uncle, Sri Montu Mallick. Later he was trained by Prof. Dhabol Bandyapadhaya. From 1985, he was under the guidance of Sri Uttam Chakraborty, senior disciple of Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri. Currently, he is under the guidance of Pt. Swapan Chaudhuri. Indranil belongs to Luckhnow Gharana style of tabla. Indranil is featured regularly on All India Radio and has been touring internationally since 2002.
