LOS ANGELES: Pt. Ravi Shankar introduced Indian instrument Sitar in USA and Chakrapani Singh introduced Kachhapi Veena among us.

Chakrapani is an amazing artist. I attended his concert and I just forgot everything except his music. His music is fabulous. He brings India in USA through his music. He is promoting Indian Classical Music through his musical concerts, teaching yoga through his music, teaching about music and his unique instrument “Kachchapi Veena” to the school kids.

Kids are amazed with his performance and want to learn and ask more and more about his music. He plays traditional music, ragas, jazz, fusion and his own compositions.

His instrument has total 35 sympathetic strings which give a different appeal and rhythm. The tonal quality and the sound production are so rich that sometimes you hear playing Sitar, sometimes Sarod, sometimes Veena and sometimes Slide Guitar. It’s a unique instrument with the combination of Sarod, Sitar, Veena and Slide Guitar. After Sitar people have started liking this unique instrument “Kachhapi Veena” a lot and want to see this instrument and learn to play it.

Chakrapani is planning to open a music school here in which he wants to teach music to music lovers of all ages. He says, “Music is very important. In this hectic life one has lot of tension, problems. People are running after money and their comfort but nothing can give peace except music. Money and comfort can give physical peace but music touches the soul and can give peace to the soul, which is very important in life.”

Recently he performed on the occasion of Cesar Chavez Multi-Faith Service and the Schools & Libraries of USA. His upcoming concert is in Sierra Nevada International Guitar Series, Spring 2013 for five days.

The Sierra Guitar International Classical Guitar Series is coming up April 17-21 in the Tahoe/Northern Nevada area. More shows might be added at additional locations in May.
