Praashekh Quartet

 

Born in Pune, India, sarod maestro, Praashekh Borkar, is considered one of India’s leading younger generation musicians. He is an outstanding sarod player, who has invented his own Esarod, a smaller amplified version, to compliment his playing on the revered traditional Hindustani instrument of Moghul origins. Praashehh hails from a sarod playing family of musicians (including his father, a disciple of the legendary Ali Akbar Khan and his younger brother).

In this quartet Praashekh is joined by electrifying young tabla whizz, Sivakumar Balakrishnan, multi-reedman, Mark Cain, a leading figure in cross-cultural collaboration in Western Australia and player of multifarious conventional, ethnic and invented reed instruments and the prodigiously talented young Balinese bassist, Wayan Dana.
