I’m excited to announce my new Patronage Hub. This is a way for you to connect more deeply with my world of music and support my music in a meaningful way.
Since the 16th century, Indian classical musicians have been supported by patrons of the arts from maharajas in their courts to folks hosting baithaks, house-concerts, in their homes.
When you sign up as my patron through my patronage hub, you receive immediate access to my entire catalog of recordings (some 5 albums and several singles to date) through the Bandcamp app for iOS and Android as well as high fidelity downloads that are yours to keep forever. All future recordings will also be automatically added to your collection once they are released. You can stream them anytime you want, burn them to CD, make cassettes, anything you’d like.
In addition to that, you’ll have access to exclusive content from me including unreleased recordings, concert videos, concert posters and lots of liner notes and details about all my musical endeavors. There’s also a special messaging board where patrons can communicate directly with me, ask questions about the instrument, about the ragas, about all the good food I get to eat at my in-laws in Mumbai…This is an organic hub that will be growing and adding more content as time goes by as well.
As you already know from following my musical journey, I’m really dedicated and passionate about the Indian slide guitar and promoting Indian classical music. This music is my life and I’ve come a long way from being a 21-year-old college student wandering around Delhi, searching for a teacher, to last year performing for 20-thousand at the Kumbh Mela. I’m really proud to be an artist who is connecting with the young people of India and I’m continuing to grow this audience and appreciation for Indian classical music in general through teaching lecture demonstrations in classrooms in India, the US and Europe.
I’m incredibly blessed to be able to play this music for you. As my patron, for $40 per year, you can have access to all my recordings, past and future, exclusive content and the satisfaction of supporting my music in a meaningful way. With your patronage, you become an instrumental force in my growth as an artist and I can go deeper into my riyaz, play more concerts, produce more music and continue to spread the love of Indian classical music.
Thank you for your support, give thanks for life!
