Kolkata, June 24 (IBNS): Jyotishman Nath, aged 10 years, is a child prodigy as he recently enthralled the audience playing at the Arcosanti Amphitheater with an instrument called "Rubab".

The musical instrument originates from Central Afghanistan and mainly played by Pashtun, Tajik, Turkish, Baluch, Azerbaijani, Iranian Kurdish and it is closer to Kashmiri classical musicians. 

Rubab is one of the national musical instruments of Afghanistan. 

It has proliferated throughout West, Central, South and Southeast Asia. 

Living in Arcosanti in the state of Arizona, Jyotishman recently had the honour of sharing stage with his Guru, Santoor maestro Pdt Tarun Bhattacharya at the Arcosanti Amphitheater with a spell bound audience mainly of American origin who were given a master class in Hindustani classical music by Maestro Bhattacharya and equally confident prodigy Jyotishman.


Himself a child prodigy once Pandit Bhattacharya was ecstatic playing with Jyotishman and predicted a very bright future for the young talent who is undergoing taalim under him.
