Rohan Dasgupta

Rohan was inspired and initiated into the world of music by Padmabhusan Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan (inventor of the great Jafferkhani Baaj). Rohan considers himself very fortunate to have learned Indian Classical Music from one of the stalwarts of sitar playing, Pandit Harashankar Bhattacharya (disciple of Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan), from a very young age. Over the years Rohan matured as an artist and developed an individual meditative style of sitar playing. Presently he is also imbibing several rhythmic intricacies under the influencial guidance of tabla maestro Pandit Udai Mazumdar of Banaras gharānā.
