Yoga
I first got familiar with Indian classical music in 2007 during trip to India. Once in Varanasi, I met Shivnath Mishra – the virtuoso of sitar, eleventh generation musician and the Academy's of Indian Classical Music founder. Shivnath Mishra became my teacher and I stayed in Varanasi to master the art of the sitar play.
I adhere to the classical music tradition, but I also experiment with different sounds combining the sitar with other instruments, voice and electronic music. During my artistic career I've collaborated with various musicians, taken part in European and international festivals.

In addition to playing music, I teach yoga and hold sound healing (musical meditation) sessions.

I'm into creating the Music, feeling the process of people's connection through art, sharing art that transforms the world.

I wish you joy and peace! Be happy!

Yoga & Meditation

Hatha Yoga and Sound meditation is a kind of healing on a deep level. Every cell reacts to a favorable sound tuning on the correct course of the processes. Through restoring balance in the body, there is a restoration of emotional balance. A man in a state of equilibrium is a happy man!

SitarPiano: the duet of Stepan Christanov and Dmitry Mikhaylin is a Union of East and West, the dance of black and white piano's keys and rainbow strings of the sitar, mesmerizing from first to last sound. It is neo-classical fusion with hints of exotic Indian tunes.

Musical project "Ganges Ragas" - the living and vibrant proof that true friendship between peoples has no borders. Sitar from sultry India, bass from sunny Italy, balalaika - wide Russian soul: the musicians of the project speak the universal language, inspiring our souls for cheerful emotions.

Indian music is rooted in the mists of time, drawing each listener a multi-faceted picture of the world, full of mystery and extraordinary spirituality.
My concerts represent a mixture Indian traditions, own music and improvisation. I perform solo or in a classical duo with tabla. I'm curious to experiment, combining the sitar with other instruments.
