Masterworks from the National Centre Performing Arts (NCPA) Archives

Pt. Nikhil Banerjee
Pt. Nikhil Banerjee was born on October 14, 1931 in Calcutta into a conservative Brahmin family. Although Nikhil’s father and grandfather would play the sitar as a hobby they looked down upon music as a formal profession due to its associations with courtesans. Nikhil however heard his father practice one day and developed a fondness for the instrument and started to learn. His extraordinary talent was recognized by his family and so his father began to give him a formal training. At the young age of nine, Nikhil won an all India sitar competition and also began to broadcast on all India Radio the youngest person to ever broadcast on all India Radio.

Pt. Nikhil Banerjee learnt music from various legendary musicians who were within his father’s circle of friends such as surbahar exponent Mushtaq Ali Khan, dhrupad exponent and musicologist Birendra Kishore Roy Chowdhury and one of the most renowned music teachers of the early 20th century and sarod legend Ustad Ali Akbar Khan’s father Baba Allauddin Khan who had rubbished Nikhil’s broadcast performance but saw a hidden spark in his talents and offered to train him.

Baba Allauddin Khan had the distinction of teaching his students by singing and allowing them to find their own technique for execution on their respective instruments. Baba consciously steered Nikhil’s Music into a direction different from that of his other legendary disciple Pt. Ravi Shankar Allowing each one to develop their own distinctive styles.

Pt. Nikhil Banerjee was also inspired by great vocalists such as Amir Khan Omkarnath Thakur, Faiyyz Khan. In many ways Pt. Nikhil Banerjee’s raga vistaar bears remarkable instrumental resemblance to Ustad Amir Khan’s Vocal Vilambit.

In the 1980s. Pt. Nikhil Banerjee’s health suddenly began to deteriorate. On January 27, 1986 Pt. Nikhil Banerjee died of a heart attack at the age of 54. He had been awarded the Padma Shree in 1968 and was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 1986 posthumously.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
