Ashwin Batish Presents Sitar Power!

I play sitar and tabla. I have a fantastic world music band called Sitar Power that has played at various festivals and clubs such as Winnipeg Folk Fest, WOMAD, Montreal Jazz Fest, Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Yoshi's San Francisco, Vancouver Folk Festival etc. I love playing live music and tour from a trio to a full 8 piece Band. Play a lot of World Beat Dance Music and Indo-Jazz Fusion Music.

I also do concerts of traditional classical North Indian Sitar Music with accompaniment of tabla and tanpura.

I own the Batish Institute of Indian Music and Fine Arts in Santa Cruz, California, USA. Here, I produce many educational works to teach instrumental and vocal Indian Music. Instruments taught range from singing to sitar, tabla, dholak, dhol, dilruba, flute, harmonium etc. Our DVDs are sold on Amazon and many of our music titles are also available on iTunes and other online download stores.
