Strings Sitar Fusion Band

Return to Previous Page

Founded in 1994 by Anuradha Shukla and Kiran Thakrar, Strings Sitar Fusion presents Indian acoustic music at its very best. Kiran enjoys an international reputation as both musician and producer, while Anuradha is widely heralded as one of the most popular Indian vocalists in the UK.

“Asian enchantment casts a potent spell – classical raga meets Indian folk melody in a glittering cascade of exotic sounds…”

If preferred, Strings Sitar Fusion can appear as a purely instrumental ensemble, perfect for generating and sustaining a colourful, Oriental-style atmosphere at a drinks reception or party. Melodic elements from sitar over rippling rhythms from the tablas sit at the centre of the sound, with keyboard completing a trio for larger events. To develop the texture or introduce drama, male or female vocals can be added where appropriate.

Music from the Indian classical repertoire is mixed with Folk tunes and Bollywood classics. Strings Sitar Fusion always travel fully-equipped with a compact, high-quality PA system to guarantee an excellent sound in venues of any size.

Mixing Bollywood tunes with classical Ragas, Strings Sitar Fusion will bring the charm of ancient and modern India to your celebration.

  • Modern Bollywood tunes are mixed with classical Indian Ragas
  • Flexible line-up depending on requirements
  • Fully-equipped with a high-quality PA system 

The Indian classical repertoire is interspersed with lilting tunes from the regional folk music tradition, with fresh and vital multicultural influences.
