Nikhil Patwardhan Introduction:

"Nikhil started his Hindustani Classical music training at the age of five. Nikhil received his initial taalim/training from his grandmother,Smt Sarojinidevi Patwardhan followed by his father Shri Kumar Patwardhan,himself an AIR artiste. Being a child artiste at All India Radio (AIR), he received the Center for Cultural Resources and Training scholarship at the age of twelve.

At the age of fifteen, he started receiving training from Pandit Parthapratim Chatterjee (an exponent of the Maihar Gharana), and a disciple of Pandit Nikhil Banerjee and Ustad Ali Akbar Khansahib.

Nikhil has peformed at multiple international venues like Clemson University International Music Festival and Colorado Springs Diversity Festival in the United States, at McBride Camp, Zambia, Masai Mara lodge in Kenya and also at venues in India including Doordarshan National television,Pune Navratra Mahotsav, Pune Festival, Gaanvardhan, Auroville, Pondicherry and Jagriti Theater, Bangalore. He also performs Classical fusion with his Electric Sitar (Zitar) with multiple instruments like guitar, cello, violin and the flute.

Nikhil is an Electronics Engineer by profession. Nikhil has an M.S.E.E. degree from Clemson University, USA and works full time as a design engineer in the field of semiconductors. Having lived and worked in the United States for over seven years, Nikhil is blessed to understand and experience both the professional and the music world in both India and the United States. With almost 30 years experience with the Sitar and lndian Classical Music, Nikhil strives to strike a balance between his spiritually driven approach towards his music along with his engineering mind."

About the Sitar:

The Sitar is a stringed instrument that is played in Hindustani or North Indian Classical music. It is believed to be a modified version of the Veena which is a South Indian or a Carnatic stringed instrument. The word Sitar has been derived from the Persian word "Setar" meaning three strings.

The Sitar is made of wood which is hollow and serves as a resonating chamber. The notes are played on metal frets similar to the guitar and attached to the cylindrical wooden column. The Sitar consists of seven strings at the top which are the main strings. Out of these, the first four strings are used to play while the remaining three strings are for rhythm and melody. The first string is the main string which is used to the maximum. The second, third and fourth strings are "bass" strings and used only in a "Kharaj-Pancham" Sitar.

The most important feature of the Sitar is the "Meend" which gives a Gayaki or melodious, vocal feel to the instrument. This means pulling the string to strike the note. For a right-handed person, the index, middle and ring fingers are used to press on the fret and pull the strings while the right hand is used to pluck. A "Mizraaf" is put in the index finger of the right hand to pluck the string.

Gharanas:

There are several Gharanas or schools of Sitar music. Nikhil belongs to a Gharana called Senia Maihar Gharana which is a Gayaki or singing-oriented school. This is the same Gharana which flourished some of the world's leading Indian Classical musicians like Ustad Allaudin Khansaheb, Ustad Ali Akbar Khansahib, Pandit Nikhil Banerjee and Pandit Ravi Shankar.

Concert:

A typical Hindustani Classical concert is based on a specific combination of notes called a Raag. It starts with a brief introduction to the Raag called an Alaap. This is followed by a slightly faster rendition called Jod. This leads to a composition or a song with the Indian drums or Tabla as the rhythm. The climax is a fast rendition called a Jhala which ends with a triple repeated, rhythmic finish.
