 About the Artiste
Aneesh Pradhan,Mumbai

Aneesh Pradhan had a liberal and encouraging familial upbringing, which was coupled with an intensive period of study under the illustrious tabla maestro Pandit Nikhil Ghosh. His training with this veritable repository of traditional compositions from the Delhi, Ajrada, Lucknow, Farukhabad and Punjab schools of tabla playing enabled Aneesh to widen his horizons.

Aneesh is today regarded as an accomplished soloist and a perfect foil to vocal and instrumental music or dance recitals. Aneesh remains a keen student of music, despite the acclaim he has received over the years from cognoscenti and general public and by way of awards like the scholarship for advanced training in tabla instituted by the Government of India and the Aditya Birla Kala Kiran Award.

Aneesh has performed extensively in India and abroad and has won wide critical acclaim. He has been featured at major events in the Martinique (French West Indies), Australia, the UK, the UAE., Bahrain, Oman, Mauritius, South Africa, New Zealand, the U.S.A., Canada, Italy, Germany, Israel, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar. He has also participated in several cross-cultural musical collaborations, prominent among which were his performances as part of the Asian Fantasy Orchestra since 1998 and his interaction as composer and performer with the Ensemble Modern of Frankfurt.

Aneesh spent fruitful years as artist-in-residence at the University of New England, Australia, and as guest lecturer at the Music Department, University of Mumbai, and several other universities in other countries. He has put to use the experience he gained as teacher in the many lecture-demonstrations and workshops that he has conducted.

Endeavouring to understand his position in a historical continuum, Aneesh realised the symbiotic relationship between performance and research. He therefore continues to be a keen student of History, an area in which he was awarded a doctorate.

Aneesh continues to enrich his musical persona in his capacity as composer to many film and theatre projects.
