Debasmita Bhattacharya, an accomplished sarod player from Kolkata, West Bengal, and is a rising young female star of the Indian music scene who is gaining critical acclaim across musical circles in her native India and beyond with her remarkable talent and powerhouse performances. Touring UK venues this autumn, we are delighted to bring this talented musician to North East audiences.
 
Debasmita was first inspired to pick up the instrument by her father, Pandit Debashish Bhattachary, and is currently a scholar at the prestigious ITC Sangeet Research Academy (SRA) in Kolkata, studying with her guru, Sarod maestro Pandit Buddhadev Dasgupta. Debasmita has won many accolades, including first prize in the “Sangeet Praveen” competition and top prizes at the Doverlane Music and the Rajya Sangeet Academy competitions.
 
Enjoy a programme of ragas on the emotive sarod, with sensitive and yet electric accompaniment from Gurdain Rayatt, one of the finest young tabla players in the UK. Join us for an evening of exquisite Indian classical music!

As part of GemArts Riverside Ragas series, this concert includes a pre-concert talk, free to ticket holders.
