This week we’re delighted to be joined by Sarod Maestro, teacher and writer Arnab Chakrabarty. You can find more information about him (selections copied from his website) below:

Arnab Chakrabarty is based in Toronto and spends his time exploring, creating and teaching classical North Indian Music on the sarod. Trained in the traditional Lucknow and Shahjahanpur gharānās, Chakrabarty has had the good fortune to study with some of the most erudite luminaries of the sarod, like Dr Kalyan Mukherjea, Ustad Irfan Muhammad Khan and Pandit Buddhadev Dasgupta. In collaboration with celebrated luthiers Naba Kumar Kanji and Ed Powell, Chakrabarty has experimented with sarod design and materials with the aim to optimise tonal quality and ergonomics of playing, and we look forward to hearing more about this, and much more, in his colloquium.
