    THE PLAYERS...
    Sangeet Mishra 
    was born into the legendary Mishra family who are of the renowned Benaras Gharana (school of music) North India, and is a professional 8th generation sarangi player.  His first Guru was his paternal grandfather, the late maestro, Pt. Narayan Das Mishra.  Initially, he started to learn sarangi from his maternal grandfather, the world renowned sarangi player Pt. Bhagwan Das Mishra and his father Pt. Santosh Mishra.  Sangeet plays with soul straight from the heart.  His capabilities and nuances of expression are extensive, demonstrated by the way he plays a raag without missing the true shruti of the raag.  He has laboured to keep alive the music and techniques of the great elders past and present.  Rooted firmly in the ancient traditions and techniques of 'shastriya sangeet' (classical music) Sangeet has created a distinctive individuality to his playing and has succeeded in blending contemporary musical thought in playing the sarangi without compromising on its traditional purity and essence.  A versatile performer, he is known for his solo recital, accompaniment playing and successfully collaborating with musicians from different genres across countries together, creating a unique musical language.

    Presently based in Mumbai, Sangeet maintains a busy schedule, traveling interstate in India and globally.  He is a sought after musician for solo recitals, accompaniment for traditional vocal and dance, contemporary Indian music, as well as within the global world of fusion music.  He has recorded on many Bollywood film soundtracks. 

    SUNDAY 17TH GUESTS:
    Vinayak Huggannavar- Vinayak is a 4th generation Classical Indian Vocalist from the Kirana/Gwalior Gharana (school of music) and lives in Mumbai. Vinayak has been learning Hindustani Music for 22 years, under the able guidance of his father & Guruji Dr Ashok Huggannavar. Born into a family of musicians, he developed an interest in music naturally.

    His father learned from his Maternal Uncle, Pandit Lingraj Bua and other established musicians such as Pandit Basavaraj Rajguru & Pandit Sangameshwar Gurav.  The family hails from Hubli region in Karnataka, where many stalwarts of the Kirana and/or Gwalior Gharana began, such as Pandit Bhimsen Joshi.
    Vinayak has received many awards, including 1st place in All India Radio Comp as a graded radio artist.

    ABOUT VINAYAK'S VOCAL WORKSHOP:

    If you are interested in Indian Classical Music, this workshop will give you a taste in understanding the foundations of Indian Music, with a large part being an experiential journey through a vocal practise.  

    Vinayak will teach about the History of Indian Music, the two categories of Indian Music, the 'Shruti' system in Indian Music and the difference between Indian Raga 'scales' and Western Equi-temporal scales, Voice Culture mechanics suitable to Indian Music, difference between Nth and Sth Indian Literature and compositions and an experiential demonstration of what it is to practise this beautiful form of vocal music.

    Shen Flindell - Since being initiated into the Benares Gharana of tabla by Pt Ashutosh Bhattacharya in 1994, Shen has grown to become one of Australia's leading tabla players.  He is the accompanist of choice for Indian classical artists visiting Brisbane, and also performs in fusion groups such as Tibet2Timbuk2.  He is best known for his beautiful sound, subtle and supportive accompaniment.  In 2019 Shen instigated the founding of Queensland Sangeet Mela Association (QSMA), to foster the development of Indian classical music in Queensland.  Shen loves bringing people together to unite through music, whether it's playing with his many young students or collaborating with top international musicians.
