Hans Utter is an ethnomusicologist, author, producer, and researcher. He is deeply rooted in Indian classical music, having studied extensively in India under the tutelage of the world renown sitar maestro Ustad Shujaat Khan, performing in Europe, Asia, and North America. As a composer he explores the crossover between Indian music, jazz, rock and Western classical music, and is also an accomplished guitar player. His research extends from music cognition to the Persian court music of Central Asia, connecting music, culture practices and philosophy with human development and world history.

I am pleased to announce four new releases on Rigpa Records. Please attend our 4th annual Raag-Taal concert.
