Eva Thompson was born in Budapest, where she grew up fascinated by Indian culture and music. She studied sitar playing at the Bharatya Vidya Bhavan Institute in London and trained in Bharatanatyam, a classic dance style from South India. She also studied the veena, an ancient South Indian stringed instrument; and Kathak dance, a classic dance style from North India. Apart from playing classical Indian music, Eva is happy to explore other musical styles. She has performed live with various comedians, including Harry Hill and Jim Tavare. Eva is particularly interested in researching the healing potential of Indian classical Ragas with the help of the sitar and veena. She teaches both instruments on a one-to-one basis.
