Indrayuddh Majumder

Indrayuddh Majumder has been learning Sarode from his father, the world-renowned Sarode Maestro Pandit Tejendra Narayan Majumdar, since he was five years old. He has also been receiving guidance from his mother Vidushi Dr. Manasi Majumder, who is a renowned Indian Classical vocalist. Initially, he had also received basic taalim from his grandfather Late Ranjan Majumder.

Indrayuddh had developed keen interest in every genre of music right from his childhood. He has taken up Sarode as his primary choice because of his sheer love for the instrument and Indian Classical Music. He concentrates on maintaining the purity of Indian Classical Music coupled with his smart presentation in his concerts.

He had the privilege to perform in front of Dr. Manmohan Singh (the former PM of India), Shri Buddhadeb Bhattacharya (the former Chief Minister of West Bengal), Shri Gopalkrishna Gandhi and Shri M.K. Narayanan (the former Governors of West Bengal) among many.

Indrayuddh is also a passionate music composer. He has composed music for a few projects, and has also assisted his father in the background score of a Bengali Feature Film on Byomkesh, 'Sajarur Kaata'.

An MBA in Marketing, Indrayuddh is also the Co-Founder and CEO of an Indian tech-startup, ShowVelvet, which serves as an online interactive platform for Artists and Audience all over the world.

Indrayuddh is on his Debut USA Concert Tour. He is just completing one and half month schedule of concerts all across USA. He performed solos as well as duets with his father. The Tabla legend, Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri, accompanied them for a few of those concerts.
