About The Artists

Pt. Ajoy Chakravarty

Pt. Ajoy Chakravarty’s music can be described in just one word – ‘Soulful’ ! His deep study and comprehension of Indian Classical Music is depicted in his unique style of presentation. He strongly believes that music exists in every creation of nature and all that we need is to ‘listen’ ! Panditji was greatly inspired by his father to become a musician and is today the torch-bearer of the Patiala Gharana. He obtained his initial training under the guidance of his first guru, Pannalal Samant. Panditji’s reverence towards Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan is reflected in the flexibility and power of his Paltas and Taans, a specialty of Khansaheb. Pt. Ajoy Chakravarty is a rare blend of performer, ITC scholar and an illustrious Guru. Panditji’s ‘Shrutinandan’, a center of excellence for educating individual needs of Indian Raga music is based on the traditional ‘Guru-Shishya’ parampara.

He is the first recipient of the Pt. Kumar Gandharva award. The Sangeet Natak Academy award has also been bestowed upon him. He also won the President’s Award as the best male playback singer. Panditji is the first and only gold medalist Fellow of ITC sangeet Research Academy, Kolkata.

Ustad Zakir Hussain

This one name suffices as an introduction of Indian Classical Music to the rest of the world. What the Sun is to the Day, Zakirji is to Percussion ! When he performs, time comes to a standstill. As the illustrious son and disciple of Ustad Alla Rakha, Zakir belongs to the Punjab Gharana. Trained in the traditional style and having imbibed the best from all, today Zakir is an institution, a Gharana in himself ! Zakirji’s efforts in the realm of World Music have resulted in creation of bands such as ‘Shakti’. He’s been the recipient of the Grammy Award twice, the most recent being for the Contemporary World Music Album category for his collaborative album Global Drum Project. Zakir’s brilliance spans over various disciplines of music. Be it as a soloist, composer or his collaborative efforts with World musicians, Zakirji is a complete artists.

In this series, we present him as one of the World’s best accompanying artists.

About The CD

Indian Classical Vocal & Tabla : Pt. Ajoy Chakravarty & Ustad Zakir Hussain

Sarangi – Ustad Sultan Khan
Harmonium – Sanjay Chakravarty
Tanpura – Prashanta Banerjee, Sujata Chaterjee, Bidhan Mitra

The Album consists of two full fledged renditions in Raga Jaunpuri, a morning melody and Raga Yaman, an evening melody. Ustad Sultan Khan’s accompaniment on the Sarangi leverages this album greatly. While Zakirji is often seen as an accompanist to instrumentalists and is a soloist in his own right, this rare pairing with a vocalist in a treat to music lovers. His nimble fingers doling out rhythmic patterns in Madhyalaya Teentaal, Jhaptaal and Drut Teentaal compliment Pt. Ajoy Chakravarty’s musical brilliance.

In this unique series, the ingenious Ustad Zakir Hussain is seen in conjunction with the masters of Indian Classical Music. Each maestro is a world renowned artiste with a magical touch of his own. And when they team up with Ustad Zakir Hussain the resulting music is enchanting and mesmerizing ! The dexterity of Zakirji’s nimble fingers in tune with each legend gives us an insight into the musical genius that he is ! The subtleness in their creativity without overpowering each other is a true tribute to the greatness of Indian Classical Music! In this series, we are honoured to present these maestros’ prime time performances.
