Prateek Haldar

 

Prateek Haldar began learning the sitar at age 13 from Ud. Hamid Hossain .He quickly became quite proficient at this difficult instrument, earning awards and concertising throughout the United States, Canada and India; including at only age 17, a prestigious concert for Ustad Ali Akbar Khan's 75th Birthday Jubilee in San Francisco. After taking a break from sitar while attending college, he resumed intensive training in 2002 under world renowned master sitarist Ustad Shujaat Khan.  Prateek has since performed alongside Shujaat Khansahib in numerous concerts throughout the United States.  In 2006, Prateek was given the honor as the opening artist for the annual Chhandayan All Night Concert in Manhattan.
