Mark’s performance career began at the age of twelve, has distinguished himself in both Western and Eastern Classical Traditions, as well as Avant-Garde and Jazz scenes, with his synergy of perfect technique and expressive ingenuity. Deutsch invented and built the world’s first Bazantar, a five string acoustic bass fitted with twenty-nine sympathetic strings and four drone strings, for which he was awarded a U.S. patent. His Bazantar and Sitar performances have garnered critical acclaim at high-profile venues such as the Julliard School of Music, Merkan Concert Hall, Earthdance International, and the Herbst Theatre.
