A leading instrumentalist of the current generation, he has an uncanny flair for communicating with listeners world-wide through his sitar. At the age of six Partha (born in 1962) was initiated into the world of the Sitar and has played for more than 4 decades in the truest traditions of Guruitar-Shishya Parampara by revered Guru, Pandit Monoj Shankar of Maihar Gharana. Partha divides his time between Calcutta, India, his home and the rest of the world as he performs, composes, teaches, and lectures.

International media, including BBC radio, CBC, German Radio, Voice of America, Indian Radio and Television, have featured Bose.

Partha Bose visualizes music as a universal language which breaks down barriers and reminds us of our shared humanity.


A tabla player of rare skill, he has already established himself as a soloist and accompanist. Born to a family of genuine music connoisseurs, he received his initial training in tabla from his uncle, Sri Montu Mallick when he was only five. Now he is under the guidance of Pt. Swapan Chaudhuri. Indranil belongs to the Luckhnow Gharana style of tabla.

Indranil has toured in Europe, Canada, USA and Russia and has represented India in many world festivals such as the International Jazz and Blues Festival in Austria. Indranil is a Grade ‘A’ artist of all India Radio where he is featured regularly on programs aired throughout India.
