USD. 25.00 USD. 15.00

  • Born in a family with music as the predominant part of the ambience, Nishindra Kinjalk had his initial training in music from his mother Vidushi Prema Kinjalk. When he was barely 8 years old, his father Pandit Ravindra Kinjalk inducted him into the strict discipline of Indian classical music. For the detailed knowledge of Dhruvapad ang alap and veenakari, he was trained by famous vichitraveena maestro Pandit Gopal Krishna. Later, legendry sitar maestro Pandit Uma Shankar Mishra taught him the intricate craftsmanship of the sitar playing. Under his guidance Nishindra learnt to add various hues of feelings to his music compositions.

    Nishindra plays sitar giving utmost importance to the purity of a raga,and the systematic approach of badhat. His rendering of jhala(fast rhythmic phrases using chikari and the main string) is a fine reflection of his veenakari training. He is adept at playing the lighter tunes from the folklife of India. The three compositions Dhun,Kajri and Sindhu Bhairavi in this album testify to this fact.

    An A-grade sitar artist on Akashwani Delhi, he has performed at various important and prestigious musical concerts in India and abroad. He has been giving his sitar recitals for All India Radio and Television for more than 25 years, including the coveted National Programme of Music.

    Nishindra also plays the rare instrument SURBAHAR with fervour, for Akashwani Delhi. Dr Nishindra Kinjalk is also a perfect blend of music and medicine. He is an MBBS from Armed Forces Medical College(AFMC), Pune. He is an MD(Medicine) and was trained as a Fellow in non invasive cardiology at Escorts Institute & Research Centre,New Delhi.

    Dr Kinjalk has done original research in music therapy. His unique method of treatment called KIMMA (Kinjalk Mode of Music Application) has been widely acclaimed as a landmark contribution in the field of music therapy.
