Pundit Ramesh Misra is a phenomenon in the field of Indian classical music. Mastering over one of the most difficult and unique string instruments ‘Sarengi’, Ramesh Misra is acclaimed as an outstanding musician of India. Ramesh ji started his initial intensive training at a very tender age with his father Pt. Ramnath Misra and later with Pt. Hanuman Prasad Mishra and Pt. Gopal Mishra (his uncles). Presently he seeks guidence from Pandit Ravi Sankar. Ramesh ji represents the 21st generation of a family of musicians from Banaras. His high aesthetic sense and artistic sensibilities along with his inner soft nature have brought him recognition both at home and abroad as an eminent soloist as well as an adept accompanist. Ramesh ji is a very high-ranking and a gifted artist, whose music takes the audience to a divine world, a world of pure music. He can be heard in many music productions, including his solo albums and Ravi Shankar’s ‘Inside the Kremlin’ and the Grammy nominated album ‘Legacy’ produced by the legendary Ali Akbar Khan.
Nitin Mitta is an accomplished Tabla (North Indian drums) performer. He has accompanied many eminent Indian musicians such as Pt. Jasraj, Dr. Prabha Atrey, Dr.Veena Sahasrabuddhe, Pt. Buddhaditya Mukherjee and Pt. Vishwamohan Bhatt. He is known for his sensitive and creative accompaniment and his solo performances are always refreshing. Nitin recently received a RISCA (Rhode State Council on the Arts) grant. He has performed in “Soul Strings” by Music Today.
