Prompt and professional. I had a couple notes on round one and the revisions perfectly reflected my direction. Quality player with smooth communication and delivery!
Indrajit ji is the best sitar player you can find on soundbetter. He comes from a gharana that doesn't need a mention and is very talented, plus his sitar sound is so classic that you will fall in love with it.
He has done an amazing work on my song and I can't wait to mix him in and release the song. I definitely look forward to working with him again.
I hired Indrajit to record sitar for a video game score - excellent musicianship, great sound quality, and an efficient recording, thanks very much!
I hired Indrajit to play on my album Sunray Project. He did an amazing job. He can also play the surbihar which is featured on my album too.
