Sharik Hasan is one of the leading pianists and composers of his generation to emerge from India. Based in New York City, he has garnered a reputation for his exceptional virtuosity and versatility, making him the top-call pianist for many well-known bands and venues. He tours much of the year internationally with the world famous Postmodern Jukebox as well as his own band MND FLO. In 2021 he joined the faculty as professor at the Berklee College of Music.
Sharik Hasan started his tryst with the piano at the age of five and by 16, had completed the curriculum of the Royal School of Music in London. He then went to the United States to attend Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music.
In 2007, Sharik relocated to Paris for two years to study at the Bill Evans Piano Academy where the young pianist integrated quickly into the jazz scene, playing in international festivals with his trio. He was subsequently awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music where he was selected to be part of a special honors program, the Berklee Global Jazz Institute, under the tutelage of Danilo Pérez.
Sharik then made the move to New York City, to attend the masters programme at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music on scholarship. He has performed at venues all over the world including the Blue Note (New York), Newport Jazz Festival, Panama Jazz Festival, Kriol Jazz Festival (Cape Verde), Nancy Jazz Festival (France), Mondriaan Jazz Festival (Netherlands), Lincoln Center (New York) and has shared the stage with luminaries such as Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, John Patitucci, Joe Lovano, Wayne Shorter, Terri Lyne Carrington, Sean Jones and Bill Pierce.
