Mr Sarathi Chatterjee, one of the foremost Hindustani Classical vocalists in India, uniquely blends the artistry and virtuosity of the Kirana Gharana style of music with the sophisticated Benaras Gharana style. Among his mentors include none other than the celebrated vocalist Pandit Rajan-Sajan Mishra. Characterizing Mr Sarathi’s performances are powerful and melodious vocalization, depth of expression, and purity of tone.
The systematic development of Vistaar, the highly complex yet well structured “sargams”, and sizzling “taans” develop and portray the emotional content of his chosen raga. Mr Sarathi’s classical treatment of “Ragas” has won him critical acclaim for maintaining its traditional purity without dilution from foreign influences. Apart from the Khayal Gayaki, Sarathi is also an exquisite performer of other romantic musical styles such as Thumri, and of devotional music like Bhajans.
