The Sitar is a beautiful instrument with a unique and unforgettable sound (as well as high visual impact) that is perfectly suited for occasions you’ll never want your audiences to forget.
I am available to play Sitar for concerts and recording sessions, weddings, parties, corporate events, workshops, lecture demonstrations, and Fusion & World music events. I have also performed at meditation and healing retreats, ashrams, care homes, hospitals and hospices.
I can offer the following options. All options include a PA system, so all you have to do is provide the space where I/we can perform.
- Solo: Sitar (one musician (myself!) offering an authentic traditional North Indian classical recital that is refined, soulful, and a memorable accompaniment to any event.
- Duo: Sitar and Tabla (two musicians) offering an authentic traditional North Indian classical Sitar and Tabla recital, with a Tanpura backing track. Together, the Sitar and Tabla create an elegant, ambient atmosphere which is perfect for every occasion.
- Trio: Sitar, Tabla, and Tanpura (three musicians) offering the ultimate experience of a traditional North Indian classical Sitar, Tabla, and Tanpura recital. The addition of a live Tanpura player enhances the distinguished quality of this ancient and graceful music, and the three instruments in harmony weave an authentic sound that is truly unforgettable.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Mr. Jagtap is a true diamond! I am SO delighted to have met him. I am taking Sitar lessons and am truly enjoying every session. He is genuinely professional in many Indian instruments including my favorite Sitar. His teaching method is really excellent I learned the basics in a couple of sessions! I’m so grateful for his kindness!
Ustad Jagtap-ji is an excellent teacher. His passion and love for music is manifested through his teaching.
We thank you for the music you played 'for us'. How truly delightful it was and it was a magical moment for us to hear it.
Vijay is a truly wonderful sitar player! He creates a very beautiful sound that was perfect for our event. Our guests were all very complimentary of his music and Vijay was professional and organised to work with.
When I had my first lesson with Vijay my intention was to have a one off class, but in that first hour I learned so much and I understood there was so much more to learn that I immediately signed up for 10 classes.
