It was an evening of tranquillity and feet-tapping as Bhrigu Sahni took his place in the semi-dark centre-stage, here at the Centre. He performed and sang his own compositions that were in turn inspired by the likes of Michael Hedges’ minimalist music- while at the same time, drawing from the Sufi, Flamenco and Indian raga traditions to create a sound that is spiritually charged.
Bhrigu’s gig this Friday was a fitting farewell to Pune and all the memory this city holds for him. Music itself has been an inspiration for the artist. “The more I work on my music, the more I discover and that keeps me going,” he adds.
About the guitarist: Playing virtuosic acoustic finger-style music with his own singer-songwriter compositions and adding colourful textures with his loop-station, guitarist and composer Bhrigu Sahni is known for his incredible musical versatility. Based out of New York, he is a graduate from the Berkley College of Music – the largest independent college of contemporary music in the world- and uses altered tunings and Flamenco techniques on the acoustic guitar to create ethereal soundscapes that have captivated audiences worldwide.
