Rain City DVD's

Sitar lessons Sitar tutor on DVDWelcome to the DVD section featuring our growing number of DVD's for sitar lessons. There are hundreds of Ragas and many possibilities for future titles if there is the demand. Each DVD contains many (up to 10 or more) lessons of material and are an incredible value. Nothing is left out or hidden. We recommend that you have some prior experience to get the most benefit although talented beginners should also benefit from them.

For over 30 years there have only been sitar instruction videos at the most basic level and even the popular titles never progressed to higher levels. With our DVD's we are attempting not only to preserve the methods and treasure of the Senia-Maihar sitar style but to give enthusiastic players the resources to enhance their playing experience. They are not intended as a substitute for a qualified teacher but should suffice in the case one is not available near you or augment your established training. We hope that everyone benefits from these, many more are planned.

3 NEW TITLES NOW AVAILABLE! Please click on each title for complete description Titles with red "*" are recent 2012/2013 additions.

A few reviews below and more reviews are here. See what are customers are saying about the Sitar Performance Series DVD's.

I was looking for sitar instruction DVDs and came across Indrajit by chance. I ordered his introduction to the Sitar and I am learning more from his DVD than from all three sitar teachers that I had to drive kms to get to. A very generous and intuitive teacher. In the age of overinformation, Indrajit is like finding a meezrab in the youtube hay stack!!!!!

Bravo!

Steve F.

Indrajit Baneerjee's DVD 'Introduction to Sitar Technique Vol 1' is a treasure! In one week, I have learnt learnt more than what I have learnt in an year.

I would love to order more of your instructional series in the coming days.

Thank you,

Sindhu
 

Hi Lars -

I received the dvd and have to tell you that IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS I HAVE EVER SEEN !!! HOW AWESOME IS IT !!! Why dont you guys do similar ones for rags TILAK KAMOD, SHUDDH KALYAN and any other really popular light ragas by the same artist?

Hi Lars,
just wanted to folllow up re below and also let you know that I received the shipment and everything was great. THanks for the calendar and agar bathi. I can't say how much I enjoyed the Introduction to Yaman. It is far and away the best video lesson for sitar that I have seen. I am really excited about your next project along the same lines. There are so many areas that could be covered and I think Indrajit is a terrific teacher- it reminds me a lot of the lessons I used to take with Amit Adiecha and also with Amit Chatterjee later.

thanks very much,
Naren
 

Hello Lars,
The DVD arrived yesterday in perfect condition, really fast delivery! I allready had a great time watching it, the general impression from this first day is: very, very good, in musical dimensions but also in terms of photography/ camerawork! I think this DVD is really equally worthy for starters and more experienced Sitarists/ ICM musicians. Allthough I´ve worked intensively some time now on Rag Yaman, including a lot of listening to as many different interpretations of this beautifull Rag, especially in the Dhrupad genre, I will be able to learn a lot from this DVD! Also great compliments to Mr. Banerjee for his warm and empathic way of explaining, demonstrating and playing. So let me thak you very much again, I look forward for the next DVD´s to come. I´ll be among the first ones to order them!

All the best, the "old European"

I have to give a shout out to Lars for the production of this first in a series DVD. I have been going through it (Yaman) and have to say how surprised I am that one can learn, actually learn so much from this type of format. Indrajit is a wonderful teacher. He sings in sargam, then plays. Highly recommended if you have no teacher near-by (and even if you do!) There's no holding back information. There is so much good stuff here that you'll be busy for months. Lars says at least 10 lessons worth. I say double that. Good stuff. Way to go Lars.
Neal

"As a student, I can say this is the type of training one would receive from Indrajit in a one-on-one environment. Even though this is not an introduction to sitar, he uses basic and advanced playing techniques to show how to play a nice version of Yaman. You are taken from alap and jor through two gats and jhalla. He uses sargam-singing, bol-baz and strokes throughout. There is enough material here to keep an intermediate student busy for at least several months. The only recommendation is to use a lapel microphone instead of hand-held, but I understand that is already planned for in future releases. In short, I recommend it as a valuable training aid."

Russ

Hi Lars

The DVD is a superb learning material,I am very happy with it. Especially for beginners, like in my case, I started studying the sitar 3 months ago,I am 50 now and never is late to begin.
With your DVD I know I have made a giant step towards understanding hindustani music.

Please keep me informed of the new releases to come.

Best regards
