Naphade is one of today’s leading exponents of Indian classical music on the harmonium. A concert harmonium soloist, accompanist, and educator, he specializes in Indian classical, semi-classical, and folk music. He has accompanied several maestros, and has performed as a soloist in Europe, the United States, and India.
