3Dvarius Ambassador: Balabhaskar

Balabhaskar from India

We’re very pleased to announce our NEW 3Dvarius Ambassador for India: Balabhaskar. He’ll play on a 3Dvarius 5.

Balabhaskar, recipient of the Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskaar 2009 by the Kendra Sangeet Natak Academi – India’s national academy for music, dance and drama – for carnatic violin, is much acclaimed for his Fusion Music which blends the taste of rock, funk, jazz, into his very own Carnatic Violin. Balabhaskar pioneered the revolution of instrumental fusion music in Kerala, paving the path that many artistes follow today.

Balabhaskar has performed with many noted musicians and instrumentalists in India and abroad, including Ustad Zakhir Hussain, Sivamani, Louis Banks, Vikku Vinayakram, Hariharan and so on. He also performs with his ‘guru’ Shri B. Sasikumar, as violin duo in Carnatic concerts and composed music for Indian movies.

Balabhaskar has performed to many international festivals including the Montréal Jazz Festival (Canada), New Universe Music Festival (USA) and Jazz Utsavin Delhi, Mumbai and B’lore (India).

We’ll share with you his news, and as soon as possible his performances with his 5-string 3Dvarius.
