 About the Artiste
Anupam Sengupta,New Delhi

Born in 1968, anupam as a child travelled around across, as his father was a master in the merchant navy. Therefore as a child he was exposed to lot of international sound, especially a lot of post hippie cult rock of sorts.

His mother exposed him to lots of rock ‘ n’ roll as well i.e. chuck berry, elvis etc. When back in india, she admitted him for hindustani classical training in calcutta but soon he was asked to leave, as he “was a non singer, trouble maker in the class”.

In 1980 winter, his mother bought him his first guitar. He would stand in front of the mirror to impersonate elvis till he actually began learning the instrument on his own. He never ever had a teacher and would rely on books of sorts and by watching local band guitar players like p.c. of shiva.

After working a few years in maritime business as freight marketing personnel, he left to persue full time music in 1990s.

His influences are surely eric clapton, led zep, deep purple, dire straits / mark knofler, allman brothers, ccr, lynard skynard, jimi hendrix etc. Southern american rock, blues, reggae, r&b, funk etc. Are the genres he loves playing.

He has been the founder member of bands like wise guys, lsd and mahakaal etc. But he went to top 12 in india at the great indian rock 2002 with his band, “anupam, the karmic circle”. He was also an all india finalist in 1996.

He has also received “editor’s choice award” from international library of poetry, usa for his original “when the within”.

He has been a consultant for nie, the times of india and pace, the hindustan times for workshop on contemporary music. Besides he has been a senior advisor / consultant at leading academic institutions.

He is the founder member of the only chain of professional guitar schools in north india, guitar workshop which deals with over 350 students. He has trained, groomed and promoted the “youngest rock band in india”, “illusion” who also has earned a place in the limca book of records. The single was released by ms. Shubha mudgal’s label, underscore records.

He performs his originals and is toying with the india of working on a solo album though fair amount of his works have already been released with “shiva” being the latest.

He is an ardent traveller and has already ventured into ametuer documentary making

He sees his future as a short film maker taking care of both audio and visual needs. Also guitar workshop is now trying to expand to calcutta and other areas in north i.e. dehra dun, shimla etc.

He uses fender strat, ibanez artcore semi acoustic with humbuckers, gibson les paul, gibson sg with marshall and randall tube amplifiers. He prefers not to use signal processors though old stomp boxes are welcome. He also uses ovation and yahama acosutics. Contrary to general usage, he uses thin jim dunlop tortex .50mm plectrums.

He is choosy about the commercial projects he does as he loves his freedom of expression. Also the caption for guitar workshop is…freedom unlimited !!
