Tejendra Majumdar’s musical journey began with a mandolin and a willingness to learn the Sarod, a mainstay of North Indian classical music. Born in a musician’s family, Tejendra was initiated into the craft by his grandfather Sri Bibhuti Ranjan Majumdar, nurtured by his father Shri Ranjan Majumdar and was later groomed under the tutelage of Late Ustad Bahadur Khan.
Tejendra’s style can be described as, a rare combination of virtuosity with classical purity and a deep sense of aesthetics. He composes music which imposes a deep & ethereal feel on the listener causing one to introspect on the spirituality of life.
To his credit Tejendra has taken part in a number of prestigious concerts and conferences in the country and has a number of CD’s and cassette compilations to his name. He has established himself as one of the most highly respected Sarod players of the younger generation.
Tejendra has directed music for two Bengali films Tollylights and Hanankaal. He has been accompanied by all the great table players of India, including Pandit Kishan Maharaj, Sankar Ghosh, Pandit Swapan Chowdhary, Anindo Chatterjee, Kumar Bose, Sabir Khan and Ustad Zakir Hussain.
Don’t forget to catch him live doing what he does best at Swaraveda on the 11th of November at the Gachibowli Indoor Staduium, Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh and Hyderabad between 6.00pm to 9.00pm.
