Our Scholars Perform
Ajoy Chakraborty has been with ITC SRA right from its inception, joining in 1978 as its first scholar. Today he is one of the youngest gurus of this academy. Initiated into music by his father Ajit Chakraborty, he was later trained by great teachers like Kanaidas Bairagi, Pannalal Samanta, Jnan Prakash Ghosh and Munawar Ali Khan. This performance is the very first Ajoy gave as a scholar of the academy, before an appreciative audience at the inaugural ceremony, nearly 30 years ago, on March 1, 1978. Accompanying him were Mahapurush Mishra on tabla and Sohanlal Sharma on the harmonium.
