Pt. SUGATO NAG – Sitar

One of the finest Sitar virtuosi amongst the present generation, and a worthy torchbearer of the famed Sarod Gharana of Senia Shahjahanpur, Pt.

Sugato Nag started his training at the age of eight under the guidance of Late Shri Anil Roychowdhury. Sugato next became the disciple of sarod maestro, Sangeetacharya Radhika Mohan Maitra.

Presently he is under the guidance of renowned sarodiya Padmabhushan Pt. Buddhadev Dasgupta. He has also taken talim from Shri Ajoy Sinha Roy of the Maihar Gharana.

Sugato’s recital has a blending of the sitar baaj or style of playing of Ustad Vilayat Khan and the rabab based sarod baaj of Md. Ameer Khan of Shahjahanpore.

A very melodious and sensitive player, Sugato’s immense talent is evident in the way he handles the sitar, playing and synthesizing two very different types of baaj to create an unique and ‘completely satisfying listening experience’.

The alluring sweetness of his playing coming from the gayaki style, the effortless meends extending upto six pardas combined with strong and intricate bolwork and gamaks reflects a mastery of execution of the highest order.


Since being initiated into the Benares Gharana of tabla by one of the great old masters of the style in 1994, Shen Flindell has grown to become one of Australia’s leading tabla players.

He is the accompanist of choice for Indian classical artists visiting Brisbane, and performs in several fusion groups including Tibet2Timbuk2 and Spirit of Bhakti.

He is best known for his beautiful sound and supportive accompaniment, and has released 6 CDs ranging from Indian classical bansuri to Tibetan world fusion.

Shen loves bringing people together to unite through music, whether it’s playing with his many young students or collaborating with top musicians from around the world.

KU SOHINI NAG – Bharat Natyam Dance

Fourteen year old Sohini started training in Bharatnatyam under Mrs. Jita Roy Chowdhury, senior disciple of Guru Thankamani Kutty.

At present she is under the guidance of Smt. Praveena S. Kutty, Kalakshetra, Kolkata. Her grace and poise on stage has won her appreciation from all quarters.
