Dinanath Mishra: ITCSRA Artist of the month July, 2014

Artist of the month

Dinanath Mishra was born in 1943 in Azamgarh U.P. Hailing from a musical family, he was first exposed to training by his mother at the age of five. His formal training began under the discipline of his father, Pandit Rakhal Mishra, who was a torch bearer of Banares Gharana.

He later moved to Calcutta where he got the opportunity of interacting with the stalwarts of Hindustani Classical Music. He also received extensive taleem from Pandit Chinmoy Lahiri of Lucknow for many years in “Khayal” & “Thumri” and emerged as an established artist with a distinctive style.

Gifted with a sonorous and sweet voice, Mishra`s expositions are chaste with intricate work and emotion. His development of the Raga involves techniques and creativity which provide a variety of dimensions to his music.

His gayaki gives way to equal brilliance in many forms of music. Having composed numerous bandishes in khayals, thumris and dadras, Dinanath Mishra is also a celebrated trainer and has produced a number of students who are making a mark for themselves in the field of music.

He has performed practically all over India including the National Programme of Music, AIR , the Radio Sangeet Sammelans and has earned appreciation from critics and connoisseurs alike. Panditji has been recognised as a Top Grade artist in All India Radio and Doordarshan.

Following is an excerpt of his performance at ITC SRA, where he was accompanied by Shri Gopal Mishra on tabla and Shri Jyoti Goho on harmonium.
