Brother and sister Joyeeta and Debajyoti Sanyal from Calcutta are leading exponents of classical Indian music.
Sitarist Joyeeta Sanyal is regarded as “one of the best – if not the very best – young women sitar players in the world today”. She displays a wonderfully creative and captivating style, and brings forth from her sitar a magical fusion of both soulful, haunting depths and tremendously dynamic heights.
Tabla player Debajyoti, her older brother has an amazing touch on the tabla and is able to bring any melody to life with his magical sense of rhythm.
He has a wonderful skill in being able to draw out all of the beautiful subtleties of the tabla even when playing with great speed and intensity.
Joyeeta trained under luminaries of the tradition such as Deepak Choudhury, Pt. Kushal Das and Partho Sarathy, while Debajyoti learnt from his father Amelendu Sanyal, and is currently a disciple of Pandit Shankar Ghosh.
The two have earned widespread acclaim for recitals that pay tribute to that great star of Indian music, the late Ravi Shankar.
