Rajhesh Vaidhya was born into a rich musical environment which has cultivated his unique style on the Veena. He inherited his indigenous talents from his father Sri.K.M. Vaidyanathan, a stalwart both in mridangam and ghatam. Apart from his blistering speed, his performances are distinguished by his use of electric and amplified strings. Rajhesh has no boundaries when it comes to music and can play world music on his veena – amongst his most memorable performances being alongside Sir Elton John in Paris. In 2010 the Darbar Festival audience were enthralled with a typically energy-filled performance.
