About the Artists

Since diving into the world music sphere Shivam now blends a unique 22 string slide guitar/sitar (created by his teacher Debashish Bhattacharia as the chattarangi) gliding with a crystal slide. This fusion instrument symbolises a cross culture of harmony in sound and music; inspiring Shivam to create these unique events Soul Sangeet in order to facilitate this process on a wider scale and reach a wider audience. Each event incorporates different musicians, instruments, vocalists and international Special guests bridging the gap between world and local music and establishing a wider world music culture.

Sangeet Mishra on the Sarangi an ancient Indian Violin acclaimed to be 5000 years old. Sangeet Mishra himself while not as old still hails from 8 generations of Sarangi players, coming from Banaras or Varanassi India. Those who know of the Indian Classical world will also understand how rare an instrument this is because of its difficulty to play and master, meaning there are literally only a handful of accomplished classical Sarangi players in the world. He has toured internationally the world many times over and Australian shores almost 20 seperate times as an artist.

Accompanying on Tabla is Massimo Bidin originally from Italy,  who has been living in Melbourne for the last decade striving as an upcoming tabla player and world music percussionists in Australia. He is competent in Indian Classical and semi classical structures, devotional bhajans, mantra music as well as modern contemporary fusions and has been learning for the last 10 years.

NadaBrahma a famous Sanskrit proverb underlines the ancient and now modern belief that the world/ universe is created, sustained and made from sound. Soul Sangeet attempts to bridge this ancient belief fusing the highly evolved form of Indian Classical with Modern day music.
