The Akbar College of Music Presents

Sandip Bhattacharjee in Concert

Born in a family with a deep rooted musical background, Sandip was initiated into music by his mother Smt. Krishna Bhattacharjee at the age of four and he continued his talim (training) under Smt. Amita Dasgupta later.

When in his teens, Sandip became a residential scholar at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy under the able Guidance of Ustad Mashkoor Ali Khan & Ustad Mubarak Ali Khan, sons and disciples of the legendary Sarangi Maestro late Padmashree Ustad Shakoor Khan. It was essentially here that Sandip was nurtured in the true guru shishya parampara system of training of the Kirana Gharana. Now he is a senior musician scholar at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy, Tollygunge, Kolkata.
