Ashim Chowdhury,Kolkata



A talented sitar player, Ashim Chowdhury hails from the Imdad Khani Gharana. He was initiated into music by his father Shri Shibu Chowdhury (a tabla player himself).

At the age of five, Ashim took up the Sitar under the tutelage of an eminent sitar player, Late Ustad Benjamin Gomes. In 1985, he started learning under Pt. Binalendu Mukherjee. Under him, Ashim took the lessons of disciplined development of raga based on the gayaki or khayal ang, the essence of Imdad Khani Gharana. This is to bring out the music of soul from the sitar.

Though a post graduate in the subject of Mathematics, Ashim took up the challenge of establishing himself as a talented and upcoming sitar player, with his intense desire to develop this art further.

Ashim has received numerous awards in this field. West Bengal State Music Academy Award ; Surmani from Sur Singar Samsad, Mumbai ; Sangeet Alankar from Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, etc.
