Our Inspiration: Sitar Maestro Late Pandit Deepak Choudhury
Ananda Dhwani Music Trust’s inspiration, Late Pandit Deepak Choudhury, was one of the foremost disciples of the much revered genius, Pandit Ravi Shankar.
Deepakji was considered to be one of the doyens of the Maihar Gharana, in his generation of musicians. Besides performing in concerts the world over, he was a faculty in the Department of Instrumental Music, Rabindra Bharati University, Kolkata, till his demise.
The name ‘Ananda Dhwani’ originates from the Raga Anandhwani, composed by Deepakji. The Raga is a blend of the Carnatic Raga, Hamsadhwani and the Hindustani Raga, Anandi Kalyan.
Through Ananda Dhwani, the legend of Deepakji will be carried forward by his students and grand students, led by his foremost student, Sangeet Ratna Shri Prabir Bhattacharya.
Our Heartfelt Pranams to Pandit Deepak Choudhuryji for his inspiration.
