A recipient of the prestigious Indira Gandhi Priyadarshini Award for Excellence in Music , acclaimed violinist Sunita Bhuyan from India is that rare performer who blends skill and a nuanced understanding of music with spunk on stage. Her musical range is breathtakingly wide, from pure classical music to a wide range of light melodies that fuse jazz, folk and a host of other influences from different parts of the world to create a distinctive sound. Sunita also uses music as a tool for her life-enrichment workshops o leadership and change. Her album “Bihu Strings” which reflects the folk music from the state of Assam is the only Bihu album on violin.
As a Joy of Giving Ambassador, Sunita has been recognized by His Holiness Pope Francis for her work with almost 20,000 less privileged children.
Sunita has wowed audiences at numerous national and international venues and now we will have the opportunity to see her perform in our home-town! She will be accompanied by Prafulla Athalye on Tabla (disciple of Tabla Maestro Padmashri Late Ustad Allarakha Khansaheb and Padma Bhushan Ustad Zakir Hussain) and other accomplished musicians. We hope to see you all. Please be sure to let your friends know also.
