Indian classical music with or without tabla player.
Fabrizio played during the cocktail hour at our Valima event this August and did a beautiful job. Very nice and easy to work with as well.
Fabrizio played classical sitar music for us during our wedding engagement party. I was able to spend time with him as I brought him to the engagement from NYC. It was clear on our ride to he has long been passionate and devoted to the sitar as he spoke of the decades he has spent in sitar study. For the engagement party he played a thoughtful blend of songs he selected for our particular occasion. The music was excellent and he created the ambiance we asked of him. A great number of guests spent much of the party listening to him play and remarked how much they enjoyed his performance.
We hired Fabrizio to play at our wedding in 2010. We had Hindu ceremony and thought it only fitting to have a sitarist. We were so impressed and happy!! His mastery of the sitar (if one can even say that!) was truly evident- he has lived and trained in India and he seems to channel the music he plays. His calm and friendly presence only added to the experience. He even sent us CDs of what was played at our wedding. He was punctual, professional, and if we ever had another need for a sitarist, he would be the first I would call. Thank you, Fabrizio!
Fabrizio is a wonderfully skilled sitar player who was gracious enough to give up many hours of his time to come to my home to thoroughly entertain my guests. He was a true gentleman, and his musical ability is excellent. He provided for a lovely evening for my guests and I; I wouldn't hesitate to request his presence again at any event. Fabrizio is a true entertainer!

What to Expect
I play Indian Classical Music that means giving peace and quiet to the audience with love.
While growing up in northern Italy in the town of Biella, Fabrizio Brua studied
piano at the Lorenzo Perosi Conservatory of Music. Never completely convinced
by traditional western methods for studying and performing music, Brua began
to follow his own musical path.
Under the guidance of a Jesuit priest, Frate Cappelletto, Brua began a spiritual
journey that lead him to India. There he discovered classical Indian music and
the sitar. Since 1991 he has studied classical
Indian music under the tutelage of the Italian sitar master, Gianni Ricchizzi, in
Assisi Italy; and with Pandit Amarnath Mishra in Varanasi, India. Now, Brua lives
in Brooklyn and studies with Pakistani sitar virtuoso Ikhlaq Hussain Khan.
Most recently, Mr. Brua's work can be seen and heard on
