Dhruv Bedi

Profile Image

Dhruv Bedi is one of India’s most promising young sitarists. The son of sitar and surbahar exponent Pandit Jagdeep Singh Bedi, he also receives training from Pandit Budhaditya Mukherjee in the traditional guru-shishya style.

He is renowned for his ability at capturing gayaki ang (singing style), and also for a wide range of collaborations, working with jazz and Carnatic artists as well as those from Scotland, Russia, Korea, and beyond. He is among the leading sitarists to have been born in the 1990s, and has a bright future ahead of him.

"I love Carnatic music too. I also love the tabla, and have learnt how to play it. In fact, my days are only about music..."
