From Andrew Chatfield:
“One of the greatest and most expressive slide players in the world.” —Acoustic Guitar Magazine
A disciple of Ravi Shankar, Padmashree Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt mesmerizes audiences with his fiery music on the Mohan Veena, a modified archtop guitar, held in the lap like a slide guitar. “Meeting by the River,” Pt. V. M. Bhatt’s improvised collaborative album with Ry Cooder, won the Grammy Award for “Best World Music Album” in 1994. At Wesleyan, he presents duets with 19-year-old keyboardist Yukal Bharathi K. Sathyanarayanan, who has performed over 1,000 concerts since he was 6 years old.
This event is part of the 38th annual Navaratri Festival at Wesleyan.
