Kishan Patel

Born and raised in Portland, OR, Kishan has been learning music since he was 6 years old. He received his initial training under Portland’s Dr. Nisha Joshi, who trained him in not just Hindustani Vocal and Bhajans, but also taught him to play Tabla, Harmonium, and Sitar as well. After studying with Dr. Nisha Joshi for about 12 years, he began studying under the tutelage of his current guru, Shri Arijit Mahalanabis.

After his first year of college, Kishan took a break to pursue his passion further. He moved in with his guru, and began training in the Gurukul system. During this time, Kishan has been training to learn the intricacies of Hindustani music through the intensive training of various genres of Hindustani music – Dhrupad/Dhamar, Khayal, Thumri, and Tappa.

Under Arijitji’s guidance, Kishan has also been groomed as an accomplished accompanist on Tabla and Harmonium. He has had the fortune of accompanying some of India’s finest musicians including Smt.
