"Plenty of unplugged soloists fill rooms with auditory


  But this acoustician stands

(actually he sits, in the lotus position, while playing)

a world apart from the standard electricity free dude or

chick. After decades of study,training, practice, and

performance, Stephan Mikés Plays sitar at the master

level, placing a karmic chapter in the book of cosmic music.

   Barefoot and ponytailed, gentle but worldly, taught by

the best on the planet, Mikés first enters another realm

with his giant, stringed gourd-stick instrument

across his lap. Then he begins to play tunes from one of his

CDs and takes the listener to outer space and beyond.

Musical Valium one moment, fire ants in your eyes another,

his is both tranquil and stirring music, complex yet

smoothly engaging.

Playing sitar is extremely challenging. Playing one a well

as he does is as rare as a rabbi in the Himalaya mountains"

--  New Times Miami for "Best Acoustic



   "Stephan Mikés has long been the 

foremost Sitarist in South Florida

and one of the most respected in the US."

    Peter Lavezzoli, author - "Bhiarav, the

Dawn of Indian Music in the West,"

ethnomusicologist, author, and drummer.

Take a few minutes and close your eyes while you let this sound envelop you completely, and if you have any negative 
vibes from your daily contact with the mundane world, they 
will melt away by the time the music is over.
