**Debut Irish Performance**

Manish Pingle is a virtuoso mohan veena (Indian slide guitar) player from Mumbai.

He is now one of the senior disciples 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 in Ballinglen, 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)

"Indian classical music was never made for South Asian people or Indian people. It was made for plants. It was made for insects. It was made for planets, for the solar system. The music's not made simply for Indian people to listen to, and that's why it's always had a universal impact - spiritually inclined people have always come towards Indian classical music from all over the world" - Talvin Singh.
