Josh Feinberg is the best-kept secret of the Hindustani music scene. Known and loved by top musicians and music lovers, he represents the future of sitar and the growing diversity of the Hindustani music field. Josh has a fresh approach to sitar with something unique to say.
Josh began his musical training at 4 years old with piano and western classical jazz bass in New York City, studying with some of the most accomplished musicians on the scene. He was hailed as a prodigy performing in jazz venues and concert halls across the New York area. In his teens, Josh became enamoured with the music of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and Pandit Nikhil Banerjee, and shifted his focus to sitar and Hindustani music.
Josh is a student of the Maihar Gharana (school of playing) and has established himself as a leading sitarist of his generation and is making a name for himself with connoisseurs of Hindustani music, as well art music communities around the world.
Josh recorded his debut album, Homage, featuring tabla maestro Swapan Chaudhuri and released his second album, One Evening in Spring, in November 2014 featuring tabla maestro Anindo Chatterjee. Josh was a featured performer in the 2016 Chicago World Music Festival joined with Pt. Anindo Chatterjee. Josh’s new album with Pt. Anindo Chatterjee, A Fallen Blossom in the Thorns was released in early 2017.
Josh will be accompanied in this concert of Hindustani classical ragas by Gurdain Rayatt, a disciple of the late maestro Pandit Shankar Ghosh and currently one of the leading tabla players in the UK.
