Sangeet 2017 - Jugalbandi
Ottawa Sangeet proudly presents Sangeet 2017 – Jugalbandi an evening of Indian classical music. First time in Ottawa world renowned artists Grammy Winner “Pandit” Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (Mohan Veena / Slide Guitar) & Grammy nominee “Maestro” Shashank Subramanyam (Bamboo Flute) will be performing together.

About Pandi Vishwa Mohan Bhatt:

Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, also known as V. M. Bhatt, is a Grammy-winning Hindustani classical music instrumentalist who plays the Mohan Veena (slide guitar). Bhatt is best known for his Grammy award winning album A Meeting by the River with Ry Cooder released by Water Lily Acoustics label.

Being the foremost disciple of Pt. Ravi Shankar, Vishwa Mohan belongs to that elite body of musicians which traces its origin to the Moughal emperor Akbar’s court musician TANSEN and his guru the Hindu Mystic Swami Haridas.

Vishwa Mohan Bhatt has attracted international attention by his successful indianisation of the western Hawaiian guitar with his perfect assimilation of Sitar, Sarod & Veena techniques, by giving it an evolutionary design & shape and by adding 14 more strings helping him to establish the instrument MOHAN VEENA to unbelievable heights. With blinding speed and faultless legato, Bhatt is undoubtedly one of the most expressive, versatile and greatest slide players in the world.
