Presented by Indian Classical Music Circle of Austin (ICMCA) at Dell Fine Arts center

ICMCA is honored to present Pandit Tejendra Majumdar — A disciple of Ustad Bahadur Khan and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Pt. Majumdar is one of the most popular and celebrated modern Sarod players in India. He will be accompanied by Pandit Gourisankar Karmakar on the Tabla.

One of the best-known Sarod players of the present generation, Pandit Tejendra Narayan Majumdar, has long achieved that order of excellence and popular acceptability, which ensure one’s place in posterity. Early initiation into music by his grandfather, Late Bibhuti Ranjan Majumdar and later his father, Late Ranjan Majumdar, nurtured Tejendra’s considerable talent. Vocal and rhythm training under Late Pandit Amaresh Chowdhury and Sri Anil Palit further ensured a holistic musical development in him. Tejendra was then accepted by Late Ustad Bahadur Khan as his disciple.

Eighteen years of intensive study under him matured his talent into a true genius. Recognition of it came in 1981, when he stood first in the All India Radio Music Competition and was awarded the President’s Gold Medal and the Pandit D.V.Paluskar award. After the untimely demise of his guru, he studied under Late Sri Ajay Sinha Roy and then under one of the Legends of Indian Music – Swar-Samrat Late Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, until his demise. One of the best equipped musicians to carry on the great Senia Maihar mantle, Tejendra combines the intellectual density and technical virtuosity of his gharana, with an extraordinary tone, touch and an ambient melody which transcends any qualification. Above all, he has in abundant measure, that indescribable ability to take the listeners along with him – the rare quality that is the hallmark of a genius. He is also a Top Grade artist of A.I.R and Doordarshan.

One of his composed and arranged music albums “SOUL CALL- OM NAMOH NARAYANAY” had also been nominated for the 2010-11 GRAMMY AWARDS!
