Atish Mukhopadhyay is one of the very few “SARODE” virtuosos from the present generation of ‘North Indian Classical Instrumental musicians’ – an avid scholar of traditional music and the direct representative and torch bearer of ‘Maihar Senia Gharana of Baba Allauddin Khan’ - the most famous traditional music school in India. Atish has performed to the highest critical acclaims throughout India and also in abroad and got several recognitions and Titles for his Musical excellence. Atish is an empanelled musician and music teacher with Indian Council for Cultural Relations – Govt. of India, Ministry of External Affair.

Music Study:
Right from his very childhood, music has been his life blood. Atish began his music study in 1985 under the guidance of Guru Professor Dhyanesh Khan (Late). In 1991, Atish found a new haven when he met and started to learn the art of Sarode playing under the affectionate guidance of Guru Ustad Aashish Khan. Coming in contact with Guru Ustad Aashish Khan was a reincarnation in Atish’s musical experience. Atish has studied music from another finest Gurus of Indian Classical Music Mrs. Aameena Perera for several years.  Atish has been fortunate to have had the opportunity to study with the legendary Late Usatd Ali Akbar Khan in different occasions.

Learning the music from these greatest masters from the Maihar Senia Gharana of Baba Allauddin Khan for 3 decades, Atish has developed a very strong musical base, yet he continues his music study with Guru Ustad Aashish khan time to time.

Experimental Work:

Atish's passion for experimentation, study and appreciation of non-Indian music and love of intercultural musical collaboration make him a strong representative of a new generation of Indian musicians. He already worked with Japanese music, Western Classical music and Jazz music successfully in different cross culture projects.
