Joydeep Mukherjee (sursingar & mohanveena)
Kushal Das (sitar)
Joydeep Mukherjee has trained with Pranab Kumar Naha of Senia Shahajanpur gharana, which is known for its foundation based on dhrupad as well as khayal idioms. Having resurrected the sursingar, an instrument of the late 18th/early 19th century, presently, he is a senior exponent of the sarod as well as the sursingar. He is perhaps the only instrumentalist to wield a rare instrument called the mohanveena, evolved by his grand-guru, the legendary Radhika Mohan Moitra.
Kushal Das was fortunate to be born in a family of sitar and esraj practitioners. He was groomed in the art of playing the sitar and surbahar by several accomplished musicians like Sanjoy Banerjee, Ajoy Sinha Roy and Ramakrishna Basu, besides his father and uncle. As a top-ranking musician of All India Radio, he has performed widely in major festivals across India and abroad.
