Friends, Music has been my profession and my means of success, survival for the last two decades. I have been persistent in making music and I will keep on doing so.
My this project is to represent India’s Guitar to international level. I bring this Guitar~Veena series under crowd-participation initiative and seek you support for it’s success. So help me to give this to you in return.
Guitar & Mohan Veena Duet II
It is one of the rarest, never before, musical duet (Jugalbandi) series between two unique instruments, the Mohan-Veena and the Western Spanish Guitar, by two musicians Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt and myself
To bring up Solo Guitar and represent India’s Guitar Internationally
Friends, Almost 15 years ago I first saw Pandit-ji at Hotel Asian International, Janpath, New Delhi (India). I was a budding guitarist then and had a parallel PR Job @ the same hotel. I never ever thought in my life that I would play with him a day or ever meet him again but it happened this year 2016. As it’s said ‘Life mei Kuch bhi ho sakta hai’ (anything is possible in life). And we are making the best use of this opportunity
Grammy Winner Pt VM Bhatt is the role model and face of Guitar in India. And it’s unfortunate that except him, we have none other solo performing guitarist in our country known worldwide. Most other successful guitarist be it Ehsaan, Bhupendera etc are either part of Bollywood and Band and rest are anonymous assistant to singers.
We all look up pandit ji to address and repesent India as he is the only solo guitarist living legend. It is his class, the standard, the life-style that inspire and build confidence in guitarist in India.
Why Crowd Funding for Guitar-Veena
Friends, I am not wrong if I have to say about Cricket in contrast to other Sports in India and thus our outcome in Olympics. Bollywood, Singing (reality shows) & Copycat approach have done same to Guitar and other instruments in Music in India. I am no way criticizing, I only say it because it mentions that Solo Guitarist domain is yet to be evolved and supported in our country and hopefully it will evolve in coming times with growing Guitar Lovers around.
So Crowd-funding is our only way to back these milestone concepts and crowd participation is the way to motivate solo guitar in India. It’s only unless you do it.
