Soumik Datta

Soumik Datta is a British Indian composer and virtuoso player of the sarod - a 19-stringed fretless instrument with a nomadic history spanning ancient Afghanistan, colonial India and modern day global downloads. He also works with other musicians to create fabulous new pieces, bringing his sarod and their instruments to new and wider audiences around the world. Soumik's most recent work is his collaboration with his brother Souvid Datta - an award winning visual journalist and photographer. Together, they traveled across six states of India, shooting and collaborating with over 100 grassroots musicians, many of whom are the last torchbearers of their music.
