Suman Bhattacharya

Sitarist from Imdadkhani Gharana

Press & Testimonials

For Suman we went spell bound. His love and affection to each and every note that he played went straight into our heart. A musician can reach perfection on technicality through training and practice but the expression comes from within. It reflects the persons character, humility and devotion. ... Suman gave us a real surprise by picking up Darbari (that too closer to mid-night) and did a full justice to it. It was very very delicately played and we repeat, with lots of love and affection. His presentation was effortless and focused on divinity. May God bless him to progress further and attain the divine bliss that is the ultimate reward of a true musician.
