Pt. Geetesh Mishra 

Pt. Geetesh Mishra, a renowned Hindustani Classical vocalist from Banaras Gharana, was born in a musical family. He is an established A grade artist of All India Radio and Doordarshan.

He had served as a music faculty at many musical institutions in Calcutta like Pandit Baaleshwar Music College, SarboBharatiya Kala Kendra &PrachyavaaniMahavidyalaya from 1995 to 1998.

He was also chosen by the Ministry of HRD (Government of India) for a “National Scholarship” for the education in vocal music from 1995 to 1998.


With a sound foothold in traditional learning in raagdaris, Papori’s Sufi and Qawwali renditions leave an incredible impression because of the energy and the softness at the same time.

On one hand, her powerful Sufi singing emanates so much energy and there, on the other hand, her soft qawwali versions create an atmosphere of love and purity for the divine.

Her forte lies in semi-classical music, raag based bhajans and it is also a delight to enjoy her Sufi and soft qawwali renditions as she brings her unique flavor into all her performances.

She is not only a performer but also a conscious music activist who believes in contributing in her own small but pertinent way to the world of Indian Music.
