Ms. Kaushiki Chakrabarty
Hindustani Classical Vocal

Connoisseurs agree that Kaushiki is the best Hindustani vocalist of her generation today. Kaushiki began her training under her mother Chandana Chakrabarty. Subsequently, she learnt from the legendary Pandit Jnan Prakash Ghosh, before becoming a disciple of her father, vocal maestro Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty, under whom she continues to learn.

She is one of the foremost representative of the Patiala Gharana today and of Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan's gayaki. She has carefully blended lilt and force to forge a gayaki that is distinctively her own. Kaushiki has received several prestigious awards, including the, the "BBC award for Outstanding Achievement" in 2005, the "GIMA" award for her album 'Yatra 2' and the "Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar" by the Government of India, both in 2012.
