Debasmita Bhattacharya, an accomplished sarod player from Kolkata, West Bengal, is a rising star of the Indian music scene who is gaining critical acclaim across musical circles in India and beyond with her remarkable talent and powerhouse performances. She last performed in the North East back in 2017 and we are delighted to bring her back again for another Riverside Ragas performance.


Born into a musically rich environment, Debasmita is one of India’s finest young Sarode players, representing the rich musical tradition of the Senia Shahjahanpur Gharana. Debasmita's musical journey began at the tender age of 4. She first started learning from her father and guru, Sarode maestro Pandit Debasish Bhattacharya. Consequently, she entered into the tutelage and guidance of the late Sarode virtuoso, legendary Padma Bhushan Pandit Buddhadev Dasgupta of the Senia Shahjahanpur Gharana.
Enjoy a programme of ragas on the emotive sarod, with sensitive and yet electric accompaniment from Gurdain Rayatt, one of the UK’s leading tabla players. Join us for an evening of exquisite Indian classical music!
