Rabindra Goswami (sitar)

Sitarist Rabindra Goswami has been a professional musician for forty years and is recognized as one of the senior-most artists in the musically rich city of Varanasi, India. Unlike many Indian classical musicians who have become well known in the West, Goswami plays pure, traditional raga music. A disciple of the late Amiya Devi, he studied the ancient Dhrupad style with Pandit Ramakant Mishra and the advanced intricacies of the music with Balchandra Patekar of Mumbai and Varanasi. He has won a number of national awards in India, including first place in the Prayag Sangeet Samiti All-India Competition in 1967, and second place at Uttar Pradesh Sangeet Natak Academy in 1972. He is an ‘A-level’ Artist of All India Radio, and has performed throughout India (Delhi, Mumbai, Lucknow, Indore, Patna, Allahabad and many others) and further afield (Greece, Nepal, Switzerland and the United States). Goswami is also one of Varanasi’s foremost sitar teachers. He is the subject of a short documentary by Kevin Taylor Anderson, who noted that Goswami is ‘one of the last remaining world-renowned musical gurus of Northern Indian classical music’. Goswami was a fellow at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music in 2014.
