“Tommy Khosla is shattering stereotypes and forging a deeply personal approach to sitar, informed by dance and electronics” Songlines Magazine
Tommy Khosla is a contemporary sitarist and composer. Featured recently in Songlines magazine, their debut LP Vignettes was released earlier this year to critical acclaim and has received airtime on BBC Asian Network. Tommy is the founder of their collective Jawari, and record label Vadi Records. Vadi Records release globally oriented interdisciplinary work, and curate monthly events in London at Grow Hackney. Winning the UK Awards for Young Musicians at age 17, Tommy has since gone on to develop a unique voice in music, placing the sitar in contemporary contexts. Taking inspiration from jazz, lo-fi and electronic music, Tommy is challenging stereotypes about the musical space sitar can be played in. Originally learning with Ricky Romain, Tommy is now continuing their sitar training with Anoushka Shankar.
