Sanhita Nandi

Sanhita Nandi is an outstanding exponent of Kirana gayaki. Sanhita's resplendent voice and depth of musical acumen brought her early recognition.

With practice, she has excelled in the exposition and elaboration of ragas with all the variations, modulations and split-second precision. Sanhita is rapidly getting the acclaim she deserves as a brilliant performer with intellectual depth.
