Guitarist-composer Sanjay Mishra has been described as a brilliant and innovative musician. Born In India and residing in the United States, Sanjay plays with an eclecticism well suited to his multicultural background. After completing his studies at The Peabody Conservatory of Music in 1985, he began composing music that combined Eastern and Western influences. In an interview with The Washington Post, he explains "I come from a tradition that has a lot of improvisation. Sometimes Western classical music can seem a little rigid, I had to find some middle ground."
