Arnab Chakrabarty is one of the most skilled sarode players in the world and as a classical purist on his instrument, has few equals. A relentlessly self-improving student of music, a teacher of extraordinary ability, an instrument designer, restorer and maker of considerable skill, Arnab Chakrabarty is the complete sarode musician of his generation. Arnab received his initial training from maestros Brij Narayan and Buddhadev Dasgupta, and has supplemented his musical education with vocal training from Pandit Yashwantbuwa Joshi and sitar music from Vinayak Chittar, an inimitable sitar maestro. Trained by the late Kalyan Mukherjea, a disciple of Radhika Mohan Maitra, the legendary custodian of the Shahjahanpur tradition of sarode music, Arnab is described by his teacher as “the best representative today, of the musical values I had inherited from Pandit Maitra”. www.arnabchakrabarty.com
