Pandit Niladri Kumar - Sitar

A maverick musician and an exponent of Indian Classical Music, Pandit Niladri Kumar is a world-renowned sitar player. A fifth generation Sitar player from Kolkata, he made his first public appearance at the age of six. Over the years, he has carved his own niche and has emerged as a one-of-a-kind musician who has made India’s beloved musical instrument – the Sitar – more popular and intriguing among music lovers around the world. His electrifying renditions on his own instrumental innovation, the Zitar, are the result of his love and in-depth understanding of classical and traditional styles on the sitar.
