Pandit Rajan and Pandit Sajan Misra, the inimitable duo of Indian Classical music are among the top most Indian Classical Vocalists today, with a distinguished lineage.

They commenced their tutelage at a very tender age from the doyens of Banaras Gharana, their father and uncle, Pandit Hanuman Prasad Misra and Pandit Gopal Misra respectively.

“Their mellifluous voice conveys the aesthetics of music in a lucid earthy manner, combined with masterly command over the techniques.” Shadaj said. “The intricate creative process makes their rendering both academically rich and melodically abounding. Their music religiously observes the purity of raga and is gifted with rare sensitivity,”
