Hindustani Classical Music & Ghazal Concert


Pt. Somesh Kumar

He is the new age ghazal singer and trained Classical singer. He has, in recent past, Conceived, Arranged & Produced the path-breaking Album, called, ASHA – A Brand New Album {SAREGAMA-HMV - 2005} / ASHA – Love Supreme. The album is a compilation of CLASSIC GHAZALS rendered in the genre of lounge music, acknowledged to be a landmark by none other than the living legend, ASHA BHOSLE. The album has been a runaway hit, commanding the No.1 spot for over nine weeks. The album also won the MTV Video Music Award in the BEST.

A scholar at heart, Pt. Somesh Kumar combines the discipline of a classical singer with the thorough professionalism of an M.B.A. graduate. His creativity and panache stem from the environment in which this child prodigy has been brought up. His illustrious father, Pandit Sarvesh Chandra Mathur is an exponent of the Agra Gharana. His talented mother, Smt. Sudha Mathur is a Violin maestro, being one of the foremost disciples of one of the greatest doyens of Indian Classical Music - PANDIT V.G. JOG. Their encouragement saw a 4-year-old Somesh give a virtuoso performance of a Chota Khayaal {a classical rendition} in Raga Durga.
