Soumik Datta is a rising music talent in the UK. He is amongst the few, who despite being brought up in a Western society, managed to stay close to his roots and to master the art of the Classical Indian sarod. Trained by the legendary Pandit Buddhadev Das Gupta, Soumik, now 25, is widely recognized as a leading artist of his generation. He has toured internationally, recorded several albums and collaborated with Talvin Singh, Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z and Akram Khan. Soumik also explores new paths of acoustic world music with his quintet SAMAY, and trains for a Master Degree in Music Composition at Trinity College of Music.
