Richard Russell



Richard Russell plays the sarod, a 25-string fretless lute from the tradition of North Indian Classical Music. He is a long-time disciple of world-renowned Indian master musician Ali Akbar Khan, and is a pioneer in the realm of world music. His goal as a composer/performer is to explore the unique tonality and improvisational nature of Indian music in combination with traditional western classical instruments. He is the leader of and composer for two Seattle-area ensembles: Shantikar is a vocal consort that offers sacred chants and kirtan, while The Richard Russell Group is his instrumental quartet.
