Pandit Bhimsen Joshi was for decades one of the world’s most respected singers of Indian classical music. As an artist in the Hindustani (North Indian) musical tradition, Pandit Joshi was renowned as a master of the khayal, a genre of vocal concert music. He was known to mesmerize audiences with his renditions of bhajans (devotional songs) and ragas.
Anurag Harsh, his student and a very talented Indian classical vocalist based in New York, pays tribute to his Guru (teacher), shares memories of his time in training with his teacher and some of his own concert pieces that took place in New York.
Anurag Harsh is credited with two solo sold out concerts at New York’s renowned Carnegie Hall.
