Get Direction

Born into a musically rich environment in West Bengal, Debasmita Bhattacharya is one of India’s finest young Sarode players, representing the rich musical tradition of the Senia Shahjahanpur Gharana. Debasmita’s musical journey began at the tender age of 4. She first started learning from her father and guru, Sarode maestro Pandit Debasish Bhattacharya. Consequently, she was under the tutelage and guidance of the late Sarode virtuoso, legendary Padma Bhushan Pandit Buddhadev Dasgupta of the Senia Shahjahanpur Gharana

“Debasmita Bhattacharya is a remarkable who is taking the INDIAN Music scene by storm with her stunningly powerful performance” – “Asian Arts Agency” Oct 2017

In Debasmita’s words “Music has no boundaries, and it is only for the human. Learning music is much bigger than developing a skill and making it a profession”.
