"We were extremely pleased with our booking for the sitar player. He was punctual, accommodating and easy to communicate with. He looked fabulous in his costume dress and fit in perfectly with our evening. The booking process was very straightforward, with prompt communication and suggestions of suitable acts. A big thank you to both the Classical Guitar Agency and the sitarist himself for providing a wonderful reception to our ball.
