Dr. Chandrakant Prabhakar Sardeshmukh

Dr.Chandrakant Sardeshmukh, sitar player and Indian musician, has the rarest of qualities: a humane spirit combined with prodigious talent. Not content with living in his own artistic isolation, he has a genuine inner urge to reach out and communicate with people from all walks of life.

He started his musical journey early in life. He played the Sitar at the age of 4. Recognized as " a sheer prodigy " at the age of eight by Pandit Ravi Shankar, he was immediately accepted as a student by the Sitar maestro. Chandrakant had a rare privilege of strict training of traditional Indian music of Maihar Senia Gharana under the tutelage of Mrs. Annapurnadevi Ravi Shankar, who is a gifted artist in her own right, being daughter of Allaudin baba. 

He rapidly emerged as a promising young artist performing live Sitar concerts in India and abroad. But he gave up the fame and glamour of the concert circuit and returned to Pune in order to pursue research in the Vedic tradition of Indian music on his father 's bidding, whom he considers his philosopher and guide. He then went on to write a thesis on 'Samavedic basis of Indian Music' and achieved a doctorate in Sanskrit.

Dr. Chandrakant has today established his reputation in the world of music as a versatile and innovative Indian musician. He has performed numerous Sitar solo concerts in many parts of the globe including Japan, U.S.A.,Germany and Australia. Music aficionados appreciate his approachability and eagerness to engage in one-to-one dialogue with them.

But perhaps the most important aspect of Dr. Chandrakant's multi-faceted personality is his inquisitive mind that urges him on to experiment with innovative new directions. His instinctive understanding of Ayurveda, which is a part of his family tradition, has lead to successful forays in musical healing His spirit remains deeply rooted in Indian philosophy and religion.

Today Dr.Chandrakant wishes more than anything else to pass on his knowledge and art of Indian traditional music to the new generation which he considers as his mission in life.
