Upcoming Young Artistes

In continuation of our mission to promote and propagate Hindustani Classical Music, we now feature a page solely dedicated to exceptional young musicians. By showcasing promising young artistes, we hope to infuse a flow of fresh talent into an arena that is teeming with phenomenally talented performers not always given due recognition.

Sanjukta Biswas

Sanjukta Biswas was born in a music loving family of Nadia District, West Bengal. Sensing a rare talent in his daughter, her father Shri Bharat Chandra Biswas helped and encouraged her in developing this art from an early age. Her earliest lessons in music were from Shri Amalendu Pal and Shri Kalyan Guha Thakurta. As a child prodigy she won the first prize in All Bengal Music Competition at the tender age of ten. She is a first class Graduate with Honors in Music from Rabindra Bharati University, Kolkata. 

After Graduation her exceptional talent enabled her to enter the dream music world ITC Sangeet Research Academy in 1994 first as a general class student and later in 1999 as a scholarship holder under her Guruma Vidushi Subhra Guha of Agra Gharana. Having remained as a scholar at ITC Sangeet Research Academy for five years, Sanjukta continues to learn under her Guru Maa Vidushi Subhra Guha in a true Guru Shishya Parampara.

Sanjukta has been the recipient of many awards and accolades, a few of which include the coveted ITC SRA Award of a “Promising Artist” at the Music Forum, Mumbai, National Scholarship for Young Artists by Govt. of India, the Jnana Pravaha Scholarship, 'Surmani' by Sur Singar Samsad, Bombay, the Madhobi Chatterjee Fellowship from Sanskriti Pratishthan, Delhi, and the Girija Devi Puraskar (Anukrit) at the Purab Ang Gayaki Utsav in Delhi which covered Thumri-Dadra performers from all over the country.

Sanjukta became an approved artist of All India Radio and Television and regularly broadcasts from Kolkata Radio Station and performs for various Television Channels. Now she is a B-High Artist of All India Radio. Her gayaki provides a blend of learning with impeccable ‘Raagdari’ and aesthetics with a perfect tuneful voice and 'aakar'.

Sanjukta has now blossomed into a mature performing artist and is being invited by not only various major platforms in West Bengal but by other cities of India like Delhi, Bombay, Vadodra, Lucknow , Kanpur , Guwahati , etc. She has also been invited by various organizers of the United States of America and has performed at New York , Chicago, Buffalo , Albany and various cites of New Jersey.
