SITAR & TABLA INDIA: K.G.WESTMAN ( SITAR), ARUP SENGUPTA ( TABLA)

Description

K.G. Westman is one of Europe´s foremost sitar players in the field of
North Indian classical and semi classical music. As a senior disciple of
Pandit Rabindra Narayan Goswami he has performed in India, Sri Lanka,
Bangladesh, Egypt, Europe, USA and Russia as well as for radio and T.V.

Due to training in both Indian and Western Music, he also makes an
excellent teacher and conductor of workshops regardless of the
background of the participants.

K.G. Westman is one of the founders and main organizers of the Stockholm
Sangeet Festival, Scandinavia’s most prestigious event for Indian
Classical Music and dance, which has run continuously for over 15 years.

The interest in Indian Music began when his father moved to Kerala in
1996. Already an accomplished guitar player and recording artist, he
tried his hand at the Saraswati Veena, before making up his mind that
the sitar was the instrument for him. Then in 2004 he started to learn
the basics of sitar technique, raag and taal, first from Stian Grimstad,
then also from Anil Singh of Dharamshala, before he was accepted as a
student of Goswamiji in 2006.

In 2017 the classical album Sonashish was released on the Kolkata label
Bihaan Music, in 2022 the Swedish-Indian-Egyptian collaboration KG
Westman & Zaعfaran and in 2023 an album featuring the self composed raag
Anandpriya.

ARUP SENGUPTA doesn't need any introduction to Hindustani music lovers
in Europe as he regularly performs with renowned Hindustani Musicians
throughout Europe, India and the US. Arup is considered to be one of the
most sought after Tabla accompanists in Europe. He studied Tabla with
Tabla exponent Pandit Subhen Chatterjee from Kolkata (India) as well as
with Subhenji's own Guru, the renowned and legendary Tabla Master Pandit
Swapan Chaudhuri, who is considered to be one of the world top most Tabla
players.
