The brilliant sarod player Brij Narayan is the son of the great sarangi maestro Pandit Ram Narayan, and it was from his father that he learnt music. Brij was also fortunate in having been introduced to the complexities of tal by his late uncle Pandit Chatur Lal, so he is very ably carrying on a wonderful family tradition.
Brij has obviously been markedly influenced by the inimitable Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, whose name is synonymous with the sarod. Brij has developed his own personality and style, marked with a deep sense of melody combined with virtuosity. He has performed at all the major festivals and venues in India, and all over the world, and has already been the recipient of many awards.
