Pandit Nirmalya Dey (Vocalist)

Pandit Nirmalya Dey established his position as performer and teacher of Dhrupad in  India and abroad. Inspired by his mother, he started initial Dhrupad training with Prof.  Nimaichand Boral, who was a disciple of Ustad Nasir Moinuddin Khan Dagar. From 1988 he has taken advanced training from Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar, a celebrated master of Dagar tradition. Nirmalya Dey continued to actively learn from Ustad till he passed away in 2013.

Being one of the distinguished performers of the Dagar tradition, he has taken part in many prestigious festivals and concerts in India and abroad.

Over the past decades, Pandit Nirmalya Dey has participated in numerous Dhrupad festivals and conducted workshops all over the world including European countries and North America. As a long standing master of dhrupad, Pandit Nirmalya Dey has a large number of serious students. When he is not performing he generously devotes himself to teaching at the Dhrupad Gurukul in New Delhi, India.

 JAZZ by  Luis Trio

Loic (Guitar), France | Bhairav (Drums), India  | Akshay(Contrabass),India

“Luis Trio” is a band that came together while playing jazz and Latin standards mainly, in Delhi. But slowly they found themselves playing more groove based music. Still connected to its roots, “Luis Trio” continues to play jazz standards, but they transform the ambiance of the song into something more personal by re-arranging these songs and adding some unique flavors.

Improvisation and interaction is the main subject of this exchange between the three musicians.
