JOSH FEINBERG – SITAR


Raised in a musical family, Josh Feinberg was introduced to music through classical piano at four years old and later, the bass at eight. At around 12 years old, he decided to be a professional musician and would practice music up to 12 hours a day. Through his jazz studies with Dan Weiss, Josh was introduced North Indian classical music. The music of Ustad. Ali Akbar Khan and Pt. Nikhil Banerjee made a particularly strong impression on him.

Josh received his initial training on sitar from Vijaya Sundaram. While at New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Josh studied sitar with Dr. Peter Row and Dr. George Ruckert, and khyal and raga theory with Sri Warren Senders. In 2005, Josh initiated his training with Ustad. Ali Akbar Khan. Josh also received training and guidance from the Ali Akbar Khan-sahib’s senior disciples and sons including Ust. Aashish Khan, Pt. Tejendra Majumdar, Sri Anindya Banerjee, Sri James Pomerantz, and Sri Alam Khan. Josh has also received guidance from Pt. Swapan Chaudhuri.

Josh is committed to the idea of music as a universal language, which contains the power to bring together people from all cultures and walks of life. He currently resides in Portland, Oregon with his poet-wife Jessica.

In addition to his work in classical Indian music, Josh has explored the possibilities of the sitar through collaborations outside of traditional Hindustani music. Some of his most noteworthy projects have included collaborations with legendary tap dancer Savion Glover, acclaimed saxophonist Patrick Lamb, and recording on jazz drummer Richie Barshay’s album Homework (which included pianist Herbie Handcock as a special guest).
