Aayush Mohan is today considered one of the finest Sarod Players on the global music scene. The Times of India describes him as having “supreme talent” and “immense craftsmanship”.
He has received training from the lineage of Maihar "Gharana" (school) of music which goes back to the famous musician "Tansen" who was the most prominent figure of Indian classical music in Mughal courts of India during the 16th century.
His playing on the Sarod is enriched with traditional repertoire of Indian Classical Ragas and the old-world classical essence and yet is a favourite among listeners of all genres owing to the versatility in his music. In 2015, he became the first Indian to be invited to perform at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles for the launch of the exhibition 'Ravi Shankar: A Life in Music'. He has done several collaborations with different genres of music including baroque music.
After listening to the Sarod and Sitar duet of Aayush Mohan and his brother Lakshay Mohan in 2012, Sitar Legend Ravi Shankar on seeing their incredible mastery decided to launch them for their debut USA tour under his foundation.
Aayush Mohan has won the hearts of audiences with his incredible mastery of Sarod and power-packed playing at prestigious classical music festivals and venues across the world, some of which are :
• The Grammy Museum, Los Angeles • Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London • Berklee College, Boston • The Egg Performing Arts Center, Albany • Musical Intsrument Museum, Phoenix • Central Conservatory of Music, Beijing • Symphony Space, New York City
