Arjun has spent his entire life steeped in the tradition of North Indian Classical Music. The son of internationally performing but Oneonta-based sitarist Roop Verma, who was a disciple of Ali Akbar Khan and Ravi Shankar, Arjun began learning sitar from his father at age five. Having studied the Maihar Gharana style of Hindustani classical music, and influenced by innovative sitar techniques inspired by the Maestro as well as by sitarist Nikhil Banerjee, Arjun performs in a style encompassing the deeply contemplative as well as the exhilarating elements of Indian music.
