MITA NAG & SANDIP BANERJEE- SITAR & TABLA

Description

Mita Nag, daughter of veteran sitarist , Pandit Manilal Nag and grand
daughter of Sangeet Acharya (a master musician) Gokul Nag, belongs to the
Bishnupur Gharana of Bengal, a school of music nearly 300 years old. In
terms of lineage, Mita is the sixth generation sitar player in her family,
the tradition having begun with her fore fathers. It was with  her
grandfather Gokul Nag, who had become the Guru of Birendra Kishore
Roychoudhury,zamindar of Gauripur Estate, Kolkata,also a noted
musicologist and author of books on music , then Guru of the family of
Nirmal Chandra Bandopadhyay, a noted zamindar (feudal lord) family of
Uttarpara, a Northern suburb town of Kolkata, that the music of the Nag
family came into limelight. With her illustrious father Manilal Nag, the
sitar tradition of Vishnupur gharana was made known to the world.

This Gharana follows the Dhrupad style of song and the instrumental
recital too, imitates the dhrupad style in the Alap and Jod phases.

Mita (born,1969) was initiated into music at the tender age of four . She
had shown rather early gestures of her love for music. Toddling with her
tiny sitar Mita began her early training under the guidance of her mother
who was also a disciple of Gokul Nag. Her grandfather’s encouragement and
instructions through singing had much influence on her early reception of
music, most noticeably, associating the instrument with song. Her tutelage
under her father started at the age of six.
Graded artist of All India Radio,Mita has performed in a number of
concerts, solo as well as duet recitals with her father in major cities of
India and in many cities of the US, Canada, Japan and Europe. She was
awarded the Junior Fellowship Award by the Human Resource Development,
Govt of India, for her research project on Bishnupur Gharana.
Mita has founded the Gokul Nag Memorial Foundation, a Trust for the
promotion of Indian Classical Music, in the fond memory of her
grandfather.
Mita is a Masters in English Literature and an M.Phil. in English from The
University of Kolkata.
