How a Canadian songwriter toured the world, composed for Hollywood, played for royalty, learned sitar and devoted his life to creating music with a higher purpose
Canadian musician Prosad is passionate, dedicated and driven. Sometimes it is easier to list the instruments that he doesn’t play than the ones he does. He sings, plays sitar, guitar, bass, didgeridoo, Indian flute and saxophone – just to name a few. He runs his own recording studio and produces electronic music. He has spent his entire life devoted to music. He started writing songs at the age of twelve, formed a band after high school and toured Western Canada. He then moved to Toronto from Saskatoon and graduated from the jazz guitar program at Humber College, while simultaneously spending those years studying classical Indian sitar. After college he left Canada to travel the world, including India, Asia, New Zealand and Australia where he collaborated with talented musicians and studied a plethora of world instruments, most notably the sitar and the didgeridoo (traditionally called yidaki). Now, years later, he is bringing it all together to become a composer and performer with a unique voice, a unique stage presence and a truly unique sound.
Prosad is a one-man show. His energetic live performances flawlessly fuse the sitar and didgeridoo with polished electronic beats and organic live loops on guitar, bass and percussion. He sings, plays a multitude of world instruments and has the unique ability of being able to play the sitar and didgeridoo simultaneously. His music carries the audience inward at times, while at other times gets them dancing on their feet.
