Sangeet Mishra - Sarangi

Sangeet Mishra will be a guest artist at the tabla school in April 2009.

Sangeet Mishra hails from the renowned Sarangi Gharana (school) of Benaras, India. Since his childhood he had a flair for singing and acquired a high level proficiency in vocal singing under the guidance of his guru and grand father the great maestro late Pandit Narayan Das Mishra. He had a strong inclination and talent in music, and received subsequent training and guidance under his grand father Pandit Bhagwan Das Mishra - the world renowned Sarangi maestro and his father Pandit Santosh Kumar Mishra.

Sangeet has added a new innovation and style to his Sarangi by blending a contemporary approach to this traditional instrument without forsaking its purity. He can play at ease the nuances of the very pure classical Indian form of music and also the contemporary/modern music on Sarangi. He is a versatile performer collaborating with musicians from different genres and styles all over the world and creating new musical language. His performance is well reflected in his achievements in the field of Shastriya Sangeet (Indian Classical Music).

In this short span of his life sangeet has made an endeavor to revive the ancient style of this soul-touching instrument, the Sarangi. He has acquired the 'tantakri' and 'gayaki' style of playing Sarangi from his father and practised it since his childhood. His unparallelled talent allowed his seniors and gurus to call him a child prodigy.
