My Wife Ragini

RAGINI CHAKRAVARTY is a new generation Hindustani Classical Vocalist of the Kirana Gharana. A prominent disciple of Padmabhushan Dr. Prabha Atre. Gifted with a mellifluous voice and enriched with a refreshingly feminine style of singing Ragini has adapted perfectly to the Kirana gayaki which puts emphasis on melody and sweet intonation of words. Her singing takes one slowly and steadily into the beautiful inner world of a particular raga with elaborate meditative alaap and lilting sargams and then climaxing with intricate taans and fast compositions.

Ragini has been doing stage performances all over India eliciting tremendous response from the rasikas. She has also been doing concerts on Doordarshan and All India Radio in different forms of vocal music. Thanks to the adaptability of her voice Ragini has excelled in the lighter forms of vocal music too including modern songs and jingles.

Trained in the Gurukul tradition Ragini always finds time to carry on the tradition by imparting music lessons to the young talented disciples.

Ragini lost her father and guru Bibekananda Bhattacharya on 28th September. Now she has another big responsibilty of preserving her father's works and music.
