Best of Baluji Shrivastav OBE

Indian Classical music concert with sitar, dilruba and tabla.
 
Launching his album ‘The Best of Baluji Shrivastav’, the recently OBE awarded sitar master performs a special evening of mesmerising Indian classical music, accompanied by Sanju Sahai on tablas.  Take part in an extraordinary musical experience and let sound be the creative energy, taking you on a journey ...
 
One of the greatest instrumentalists to come from India, Baluji Shrivastav is a blind musician who excels in playing the sitar, dilruba and tabla among other traditional Indian instruments.  Described by London's Evening Standard as “sitarist to the stars”, his incredible versatility has led him to work with acts like Massive Attack, Stevie Wonder and Coldplay and of course many of India’s finest artists including Ustad Faiyaz Khan, Anindo Chatterji and Akram Khan.
 
Baluji has released 8 albums through ARC Music including: ‘Classical Indian Sitar & Surbahar Ragas’, ‘Shadow of the Lotus’ and ‘Re-Orient - Indian World Music Fusion’.  His new album ‘The Best of Baluji Shrivastav’ will also include a number of tracks from his project The Inner Vision Orchestra, the UK’s only orchestra of blind and visually impaired musicians. Awarded the OBE in 2016 for services to music, he founded the Baluji Music Foundation to encourage disabled people to get involved in music, music being such an important part of how he communicates with the world.
