Chirag Katti, fondly called as ‘Sitar Vaadan ka Naya Chirag’ (a new star in the field of sitar), is one of the most gifted and talented musician whose youthful exuberance and persona is well expressed through his music.
Learning Sitar from his father Pt.Shashank Katti, Chirag is a graded artist of A.I.R (All India Radio) and a Diploma holder in music from Mumbai University. Chirag is one of the most promising Sitarist in the field of Indian classical music.
A recipient of the prestigious ‘Surmani’ award and scholarship holder for Sitar by the Ministry of Culture (New Delhi), Chirag has performed on many television channels, radio and concerts in India and abroad (US, Japan, South Africa).
The maturity that one finds in his performance at this young age is quite appreciable.
As stated by Rave (International Magazine)-
‘There is little doubt that Katti has enormous talent-his playing is both studied and expansive, and he tackles difficult raags with panache. Also, his sitar skills bear the mark of years of practice’.
