Sitar & Cello Concert by Shubhendra Rao & Saskia Rao-DE Haas

Accompanied by Shahbaz Hussain on Tabla

Shubhendra Rao, sitar maestro and composer of outstanding merit learnt his art in the true "Guru-Shishya Parampara", living with and learning from his Guru, Pandit Ravi Shankar for over ten years. He was initiated in his training at the age of three with a first lesson from the master who visited him at his home. Through years of rigorous training and practice, Shubhendra received a firm foundation from where he could explore the realm of music and build his own intrinsic identity that created the solid foundation on which he could build the musical treasury he shows today.

Saskia Rao-de Haas is a brilliant cellist and composer from the Netherlands who is based in India.

She has enriched North Indian classical music with her unique instrument, the Indian cello, and created a distinctive playing style with it. As a composer, she is eminent at bridging the Western and Indian classical music traditions. In addition to her prestigious status in India, Saskia is an accomplished Western classical cellist.
