Indian classical music concert at DUCTAC on 2nd of October

Vishwa Mohan Bhatt also known as V.M.Bhatt
Vishwa Mohan Bhatt also known as V.M.Bhatt

Indian slide-guitar virtuoso, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt makes a rare visit to the Centerpoint Theatre, DUCTAC, Mall of the Emirates in Dubai on Friday, 2nd of October. The concert is part of the Emirates NBD Classics season IV.

Whilst Bhatt has spent a lifetime playing his chosen instrument, the mohan veena, he is best remembered in the West for his 1994 Grammy-winning collaborative album, A Meeting By The River, with Ry Cooder.

He has mesmerized the world with his pristine pure, delicate yet fiery music. It is due to Vishwa’s maiden mega effort that he rechristened guitar as MOHAN VEENA, his genius creation and has established it at the top most level in the mainstream of Indian Classical Music scenario, thereby proving the essence of his name VISHWA (meaning the world) and MOHAN (meaning charmer) and indeed, a world charmer he is.

Being the foremost disciple of Pt. Ravi Shankar, Vishwa Mohan belongs to that elite body of musicians which traces its origin to the Moughal emperor Akbar’s court musician TANSEN and his guru the Hindu Mystic Swami Haridas.
