Her soulful and unique style of playing has received accolades from audiences and peers alike. She began training at the age of seven with sitar maestro Ustad Dharambir Singh MBE (a disciple of the late Ustad Vilayat Khan) and under the guidance of Pandit Arvind Parikh and Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan.
