Anupam Shobhakar

Anupam Shobhakar, is an Indian musician, composer, instrumentalist, record producer, and classically trained sarodist currently living in Brooklyn, New York. He has released three World Fusion albums, and one classical Indian music album. He has performed live around the world at various venues and for charitable causes. Shobhakar’s track “Water” made it to the first round of the Grammy Awards.

Shobhakar met Ustad Aashish Khan briefly when he came to do a concert in Bombay and stayed at Shobhakar’s apartment. Shobhakar states that he was “blown away by Khan’s command over the Sarode,” and has been studying with him ever since. Shobhakar lists Khan, and his father, Ustad Allaudin Khan (guru to Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan), as his main playing style influences: “Slightly aggressive in approach, but never at the cost of the melodic charm.” Shobhakar was recognized for his talents as an Indian Classical Music performer by the Priyadarshni Academy, who awarded him the Best Young Artist Award. Shobhakar’s current focus is World Fusion and Jazz Fusion.
