Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, the great Indian Classical maestro who has popularised the ‘Mohan Veena’ (Indian slide guitar), turns 66 today.

Vishwa Mohan Bhatt is best known for his Grammy award winning album A Meeting by the River with Ry Cooder. He is also known for other fusion and pan-cultural collaborations with Western artists such as Taj Mahal, Béla Fleck and Jerry Douglas. Exposure such as an appearance on the 2004 Crossroads Guitar Festival, organized by Eric Clapton, allows his playing to reach a larger audience.
