Pandit Tarun Bhattacharya Recital

Pandit Tarun Bhattacharya needs no introduction to the world of Indian Classical Music. Over the years his unique style of playing the santoor, the Indian version of the dulcimer, has offered new dimensions to the scope of this versatile instrument. Trained initially under his father, Shri Robi Bhattacharya he went on to hone his skills under Pandit Dulal Roy of Calcutta.

Subsequently, Pt. Bhattacharya was taken on as a disciple by none other than the legendary maestro, Pandit Ravi Shankar. Pt. Bhattacharya has performed extensively all over the world in top notch venues and festivals. Some of these are the Royal Albert Hall, London; the Kremlin, Moscow; the Palais de Beaux Arts, Brussels and the BBC PROMS 100 year celebrations, U.K. Having recorded for numerous well-known music companies worldwide, Pt. Bhattacharya has over thirty releases. His recent Compact Disc 'Nomad Christmas' under the Music of the world label won him a Pre-Grammy nomination.
