A tribute to a legend of the music world - Pt. Sharda Sahai. The end of 2011 was a devastating time for all who knew the great Tabla maestro, Pt. Sharda Sahai. It is unlikely that we will ever see, meet or hear a phenomenal performer, vidvaan musician and great human being all in one person. I had the great fortune of being a close disciple with whom he shared a lot of love and encouragement. I owe everything to my Guru Ji who taught me with love, dedication and devotion. He treated me like his son and we shared many laughs, lots of good music and discussion about life and music. I am forever indebted to him and thank the almighty who sent an angel like my Guru Ji to hold my hand and guide me. Forever yours, Bhupinder
What have I been up to: European tour with Sarode player Arnab Chakrabarty. Tribute concerts to for my Guru Ji - dates to be confirmed soon.
