Why hire Ronobir Lahiri?
Sitar Music for the cocktail party, steeped in the traditions with over 20 years professional experience in North Indian Classical music, but updated to a modern context, using backing tracks of house, club, ambient, and lounge to create a Buddha Bar type atmosphere that's young, hip, and a perfect auditory backdrop for any occasion with an ethnic theme.
Sitar Music with a modern edge. Based in the tradition of North Indian Classical, I provide energetic, uplifting live sitar over a bed of ambient, club, and lounge tracks, creating a chill atmosphere that's perfect for the cocktail party or reception. Over 20 years professional experience, having trained in Calcutta India, under Deepak Choudhuri, the preeminent disciple of Ravi Shankar, using elements of raga and tala theory, I explore the tension between computer generated music and human emotion. By overlaying traditional Indian ragas onto ambient, house, techno, and club tracks, I seek to create a sound environment both intense yet soothing, joyful yet profound, uplifting yet understated.
More than anything else, I embark on this experiment with great respect and humility towards the rich and complex Indian musical tradition from which I came.
