Indrani Mukherjee

Profile Image

Indrani Mukherjee is a vocalist from Kolkata, who performs khayal in the Kirana-Rampur style and thumri in Purab Ang. Her mother and father were, respectively, a singer and an architect - after early training in the family she studied under gurus from Allahabad and Benares, and was selected as a scholar of the ITC Sangeet Research Academy.

She received taleem from Pandit Arun Bhaduri towards the end of his life, along with extended stints of study by Vidushi Purnima Choudhury, Pandit Ramashreya Jha, and Vidushi Manju Sundaram. She now pursues a successful performance career, singing around the world and appearing at major festivals back home.

"When I was around 14 years old, my grandfather, who was my first guru, asked me what is my aim in life? He gave me a few days to make my decision and let him know. After a great deal of thinking, I wrote to my grandfather that 'ami gayeka hote chai' [I want to be a vocalist]."
