JUN 02, 2012 | THE SPIRIT OF SITAR

A leading instrumentalist of the current generation, PARTHA BOSE has
an uncanny flair for communicating with listeners world-wide through
his SITAR.

Trained for more than 4 decades in the truest traditions of
GURU-SHISHYA PARAMPARA by revered GURU, Pandit MONOJ SHANKAR of MAIHAR
GHARANA, Partha is credited with a singularly distinct approach to
music, reflecting an imaginative synthesis of virtuosity and
creativity. Lauded by connoisseurs for his performances in major music
festivals Partha divides his time between Kolkata, his home, and rest
of the world – performing, composing, teaching, lecturing at countless
venues including reputed universities. Bose is possibly the first and
only visiting Indian musician to be invited for 4 years in a unique
project of lecture-demonstrations in Canadian schools funded by
Ontario Trillium Foundation, Government of Ontario, Canada. He was
also the only Indian musician in National Multicultural Festival of
the Government of Australia in 2012.

Partha Bose earned a rare distinction when tabla legend, Pandit Kishen
Maharaj accompanied him in a sensational concert in Kolkata in March
2006, – the maestro’s last performance in the “Mecca” of music.

International media – including BBC radio, Canadian Broadcasting
Corporation, German radio, Voice of America, Indian radio & television
- have featured Bose in programmes and interviews to share his vision
of life and of music. Partha Bose’s music – in the form of audio CDs
produced in India & abroad – is already a part of the legacy of Indian
Classical Music.

The Government of India invited Bose to lead a cultural delegation to
African countries on the historic occasion of Golden Jubilee of
India´s Independence as a mark of special acknowledgement of his
pre-eminence among the cultural elite of the country.

Partha Bose visualizes music as a universal language which breaks
barriers and reminds us of our shared humanity.
