Indrayuddh Majumdar

Indrayuddh Majumdar has been learning Sarod from his father, the world-renowned Sarod Maestro, Pandit Tejendra Narayan Majumdar, since he was five years old. 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.

He represents the Senia Maihar Gharana (School of Music), which was founded by one of the greatest saints of Indian Classical Music, Acharya Baba Ustad Allauddin Khan, and popularized by his worthy disciples: Swara Samrat Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Bharat Ratna Pandit Ravi Shankar, Vidushi Annapurna Devi, Pandit Nikhil Banerjee, Ustad Bahadur Khan, Ustad Aashish Khan, and others.

Indrayuddh is the first Indian to receive the prestigious Salon Di Virtuosi Award in New York, which is awarded annually to the Best Classical Musicians across the globe. He was given this award after a special concert at the Consulate General of India in New York on 7th June, 2018.

He was extremely fortunate to perform with his father and the Tabla legend, Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri, in Kolkata and also in California, USA. They had performed together at the Ali Akbar College of Music, San Rafael (California), which is regarded as the Sanctum Sanctorum of Indian Classical Music. This institute was founded by the legend of Indian Classical Music, the Emperor of Sarode, Swara Samrat Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, who was also the Guru of Indrayuddh’s father, Pt. Tejendra Narayan Majumdar.

Indrayuddh had the privilege to perform in front of Dr. Manmohan Singh (the former PM of India), Mr. Buddhadeb Bhattacharya (the former Chief Minister of West Bengal), Mr. Gopalkrishna Gandhi and Mr. M.K. Narayanan (the former Governors of West Bengal).

He is already a regular performer all across India, the USA and UK. By this young age he has already performed in the major cities like Boston, New York, London, Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Dallas, Atlanta, Liverpool and Manchester, among others.

Indrayuddh is an MBA (Marketing) by academic qualification, and he developed keen interest in every genre of music right from his childhood. He has taken up Sarod as his primary choice because of his sheer love for the instrument and Indian Classical Music. He concentrates on maintaining the purity of Indian Classical Music coupled with smart presentation in his concerts, which attract people of all ages.
