About Purbayan

Purbayan Chatterjee is one of the most sought-after musicians in India and a global ambassador for Indian classical music.  An exponent of the Senia Maihar Gharana founded by Baba Alauddin Khan, Purbayan learned the Sitar from his father Pt. Parthapratim Chatterjee and Ud. Ali Akbar Khan, with Vocal training from Pt. Ajoy Chakraborty, and Tabla training from Pt. Anindo Chatterjee. Inspired by the tone and richness of Nikhil Banerjee, Purbayan brings to his music a personal touch of urbane sensitivity. With several of his albums, including “Leher” and “String Struck”, hitting the charts, he regularly collaborates with world class musicians like Shankar Mahadevan, Ud. Zakir Hussain, and jazz legend Pat Metheny.
