Pandit Budhaditya Mukherjee, one of the most accomplished sitarists of his generation, has performed around the world and last performed at the Museum in 2016. He received his training in sitar and surbahar from his illustrious father, the late Pandit Bimalendu Mukherjee, a doyen of the Imdadkhani Gharana. Mukherjee has received numerous accolades, including India’s Padma Bhushan award in 2019 and the Sangeet Natak Akademi award from the President of India in 2010.
Sri Soumen Nandy started learning tabla when he was six years old from Pandit Pankaj Chatterjee, a disciple of the late Ustad Keramatullah Khan of the Farukabad Gharana. He is currently pursuing further training under Pt. Arup Chatterjee. Soumen is a regular artist on All India Radio, and has accompanied many senior artists and performed at numerous festivals.
