Master of the santoor, a 100-string hammered dulcimer, Pandit Bhattacharya has studied under both Shivkumar Sharma, who introduced the instrument to Indian classical music, and Ravi Shankar. He also kicks off the first of several Rubin concerts during this rather amazing weekend festival billed as a tribute to the late sitar legend. Snehasish Mozumdar (mandolin), Kanika Pandey (vocals), Rajeev Taranth (sarod), and Shahid Parvez Khan (sitar), all accompanied by equally accomplished tabla virtuosi, will also perform during the weekend.
