Bio

Snehasish Mozumder comes from the established Indian classical musicians of India who has mastered the art of mandolin. His style perfectly blends North Indian classical music with any other style or genre of music.

Snehasish comes from a musically oriented family having started on the tabla before he picked up the mandolin under the guidance of his grandfather, late Sri Bibhuty Ranjan Mozumder, followed by his father Sri Himangshu Mazumder and his uncle, late Sri Ranjan Mozumder. He continues to train under his cousin Sri Tejendra Narayan Majumdar, a well-known sarode player.

The in-depth study of his art extended to the late Ajoy Sinha Roy, a disciple of Baba Allauddin Khan, the founder of the the school of music in Maihar. His laykari/playing techniques are a salute to Anil Palit, the senior most disciple of Kishan Maharaj. The melodious voice brought out of his instrument has been further boosted by his mentorship with vocalist, Ajoy Chakraborty, in Kolkata.

Snehasish tours extensively across Europe and North America and has been leaving an impression of excellence amongst music lovers.
