Description

Considered one of the finest Sitar players to emerge on the Indian music scene in the UK, Roopa Panesar has been receiving kudos from audiences and peers alike for her outstanding ability and quality of music. Her soulful and unique style of playing has left her listeners captivated and craving more.

At the age of seven, she began her training under the great educationalist and sitar maestro Shri Dharamvir Singh and was always recognized as a talent to watch out for in the future. Since then, Roopa has gone from strength to strength. With the incredible emotional depth of her sound, she has touched the hearts of audiences far and wide and received blessings from many eminent musicians in the world of Indian classical music.

Roopa has also been teaching the sitar for a number of years and is involved in numerous projects to inspire and educate the next generation of Indian classical musicians. As well as being deeply rooted in the classical tradition, Roopa has collaborated with musicians from both Jazz and Western Classical genres.

After successfully completing her sell-out tour of the UK, Roopa recently released her greatly anticipated first solo album KHOJ. Next, she is all set to share her music with international audiences in both India and the USA.
