The Artists

Debashish Bhattacharya

Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya

Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya was born into a musical family in Kolkata, and his skill became apparent at a young age. His parents, both traditional Indian vocalists, gave him a basic understanding of music—his brother and sister are musicians as well. He first began strumming a guitar when he was 3 years old, when his father gave him a full-size Hawaiian lap steel guitar.

Pandit Tanmoy Bose

Tanmoy Bose is one of the foremost musicians in the contemporary world music scene, and an indispensable member of the table and rhythm community. Born to a family of connoisseurs, he began learning music at the age of seven—studying vocal music from Pandit Maharaj Banerjee, harmonium from Pandit Mantu Banerjee, and subsequently learning table. Tanmoy first took his talim from the late Kenai Dutta, and after his passing, Tanmoy became a Gandabandh Shagird of Pandit Shankar Ghosh.

He has also been receiving vocal guidance from his mother, Dr. Manasi Majumder, who is a renowned Indian Classical vocalist. Initially, he had also received taalim (lessons) from his grandfather, the late Ranjan Majumder, and he had the fortune of receiving taalim on Laya & Taal (Rhythm) from the world-renowned Tabla Maestro, the late Pandit Subhankar Banerjee.

His style expertly blends the vocalistic turns of his gurus, who include singers such as Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty as well as esteemed sitarists Pandit Manilal Nag, Pandit Partha Chatterjee, and Pandit Kushal Das.
