Souryadeep Bhattacharyya is a well-known name among the new generation of Indian classical musicians.

From the age of twelve years, Souryadeep has been the disciple of the legendary sarodiya Pt.Alok Lahiri under Guru-Shishya Parampara and he also receives guidance from his Gurudada Sri Abhisek Lahiri at present. Souryadeep's playing style encompasses the Maihar, Shahjahanpur and Gwalior gharanas of sarod; a strong believer in the universality of music, Souryadeep has been integral to several world music groups and collaborations with other musicians across genres.
