Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt

Renowned Grammy-winning Hindustani classic music instrumentalist Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt presents the music of the Mohan Veena (the Hindustani slide guitar), accompanied by Amit Kavthekar on tabla. Bhatt has mesmerized the world with his pristine yet fiercely passionate and expressive music, and he is known for his blinding speed and flawless legato on the Mohan Veena, which he created and popularized by adding 14 more strings to the Hawaiian guitar.

He is also known for many extraordinary pan-cultural collaborations with artists such as Ry Cooder, Jerry Douglas, and Béla Fleck. This event is sponsored by Berklee’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of Faculty Development, LearnQuest Academy, and Berklee’s Liberal Arts Department.
