Kaushiki Chakrabarty could reproduce Hindustani classical vocal patterns at the age of two. It would not be an overstatement to assert that Kaushiki was a child prodigy.
Kaushiki began taking lessons from her mother Chandana Chakrabarty subsequently from legendary Pandit Jnan Prakash Ghosh ultimately becoming a disciple of her father, vocal maestro Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty.
Her prowess as a khayal singer is well known, but she is adept at singing other ‘light classical’ genres like thumri, dadra, kajri, chaiti, bhajan etc.
Kaushiki has recorded many albums, sung at several concerts and has received several prestigious awards, including the Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Purashkar (awarded by the Government of India) , the BBC award for outstanding achievement in, and the GIMA award for her album ‘Yatra 2’and recently Aditya Birla award 2013.
