Manish Pingle is a virtuoso Indian slide guitarist from Mumbai and a disciple of Ustad Shahid Paravez, the famous sitar maestro of Itawa gharana.
Manish has introduced a slight variant to his right hand picking technique to his contemporaries like Debashish Bhattacharya by using index finger and thumb on the main melody strings allowing for a tremendous advantage for speed.
For his Irish debut, he will be playing a selection of traditional Indian ragas as well as some folk tunes accompanied by tabla player Rupak Kumar Pandit.
"Rhythms spark to life, pushing the winding guitar melodies higher and higher until each raga touches the clouds. It’s truly remarkable, transcendental music." - Foxy Digitalis (Samarpan album review 2023)
