REVIEW FOR SAROD RECITAL BY PT. TEJENDRA NARAYAN MAJUMDAR
The Hyderabad Bangalee Samithi is presenting a Hindustani sarod recital by Pt. Tejendra Narayan Majumdar, at Hari Hara Kala Bhavan, on 28th July. He will be supported on the tabla by Yogesh Samshi.
Tejendra Narayan Majumdar was born in a musician's family, and was introduced to the sarod by his grandfather Bibhuti Ranjan Majumdar, nurtured by his father Ranjan Majumdar, and groomed under the tutelage of Ustad Bahadur Khan. After his Ustad's untimely demise, Tejendra continued his studies with Ajoy Sinha Roy, and the greatest sarod maestro of our times, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.
Tejendra Majumdar has successfully combined the techniques of the Tantrakari style with that of the Gayaki. An artiste from the Maihar Gharana, he has performed in all major festivals in India, and also abroad. He has also worked with all the great tabla players of our time.
The Hyderabad Bangalee Samithi was established in 1942, to promote goodwill and a feeling of fellowship among members of the Bengali community, and also between the Bengalis and the other communities, living in Andhra Pradesh. To achieve this, the Samithi organises various cultural and musical events regularly, in addition to the annual Durgashtami that is organised on a grand scale.
