Raj received training in India, in the Hindustani genre of the classical music of India, on the bansuri bamboo flute from his Guru Sri K.P. Shenoy and on the sitar from his Guru Sri N.R. Rama Rao. He has given many performances in India, Canada, and Brazil. In Calgary, he has performed for the University of Calgary, the Raga Mala Music Society, the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute, the City of Calgary, the Glenbow Museum, Arts Commons, and other organizations. His arrangements and presentations have included innovative combinations of many varieties of instruments and genres of music. He wishes to present and promote the classical music of India in its pure, serene, soothing, and natural acoustic character to facilitate yoga, meditation, contemplation, reflection, mindfulness, and relaxation.
Raj has been performing in Canada for more than 40 years. He has provided numerous guest lecture-demonstrations in courses on South Asia and World Music at the University of Calgary, at the College of the Rockies (Cranbrook, BC), and for several organizations. His music has been licensed to many prestigious museums as well as yoga and meditation schools. He has collaborated with musicians of multiple genres, and firmly believes that music transcends all boundaries!
Raj wishes you a pleasant and mindful exploration through his music!
