An evening of Indian Classical music, organised by the Sonarpur Shilpi Gosthi, presents sarodia Ranajit Sengupta, disciple of Late Ustad Dhyanesh Khan. He is currently under the tutelage of Ustad Ashish Khan and performs in Calcutta after a short gap. Sengupta, hailing from the Maihar (Seni) Gharana is an ‘A’ grade artiste of AIR since 1994. A master’s degree holder in music and a topper from Rabindra Bharati University, he is also the youngest Indian to receive an invitation from an European university for a lecture-demonstration. He is involved in various world music projects, compositions, part-time lecturership and performances the world over. But his first passion, sarod, and his willingness to work here bring him back whenever he gets time. Today, Uttam Chakraborty will be accompanying him on the tabla. Other attractions of the evening are vocalist Dr Pratyusha Chowdhuri accompanied by Sukumar Moitra on tabla. The programme begins with a solo tabla recital by Indranil Mallick.
