ROCK SITAR is fronted by Nepal’s ‘the’ most prolific sitar player Bijay Vaidhya. He’s been also long associated with SUR SUDHA, one of the most popular sitar-flute-tabala trios playing Eastern Classical Music. (Their Dashain-tune is still popular, I guess.) Anyways, ROCK SITAR, Vaidya’s new band featuring Nikhil Tuladhar on drums, Suren Lama on guitars, Deepak Shakya on bass and Pratap KC, just released three albums (yes 3 at the same time) this April, 2011.
Check out the band’s website [ http://www.rocksitar.com ], you can download some of their stuffs and also watch vidoes which will give general idea about how the band sounds like.
