Happy birthday Jaspreet!
Jaspreet Singh, from a non-musical family, studied sitar under the legendary Padamshree Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan: the maestro that inspired him to begin the very difficult and magical path of the sitar. He has won multiple national awards for sitar performance and is known for his vibrant and soulful interpretations of the ragas. He graduated from Punjabi University in Patiala with many honours and distinctions in both sitar performance and teaching the many different Hindustani instruments including sitar, tabla, surbahar, veena, vocal, rabab, harmonium, dilruba, and others.
Wanna see the birthday boy play sitar and a bunch jam with him? Come out tonight.
