Born into a highly creative family from Bangalore, India, Pt. Taranath began studying music, song and poetry with his father at a very early age. As a teenager, he attended a concert featuring classical Indian music that would forever change his life and artistic path. Under the tutelage of great sarod maestro Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Taranath became dedicated to the sarod, the lyrical, deeply resonant relative of the lute. Today, nearly 40 years later, Taranath is considered one of India’s top classical instrumentalists and his performances masterfully combine the depth and rigor of traditional Hindustani classical music with inspired imagination and emotional intensity. For this, Taranath has received wide acclaim, including the Indian government’s highest honor for the classical performing arts, the prestigious Sangeet Natak Akademi award. Internationally acclaimed sarod player Pandit Rajeev Taranath comes to the U.S. for a special performance at the Musical Instrument Museum.
