Soumik Datta

‘One of the biggest new music talents in Britain’ – Vogue

Winner of the Aga Khan Music Award and the Artist in Residence at Philharmonia Orchestra, Soumik Datta is a visionary musician with the ability to cross boundaries, cultures and art forms. A sarod virtuoso, bandleader, TV presenter and Artistic Director of the Soumik Datta Arts charity, his work pushes the limits of Indian classical music to address the urgent issues of our times.

One of the last disciples of the sarod legend, Pandit Buddhadev Das Gupta, Soumik is now acclaimed for extending the reach of the sarod, collaborating with refugee, mental health and climate action practitioners as well as artists from disparate global traditions including Beyonce, Jay-Z, Nitin Sawhney, Akram Khan, Anoushka Shankar and BBC Singers.
