- Anol Chatterjee
Anol Chatterjee is a rising name in the field of Indian Classical Vocal Music.

His exceptional sense and command over rhythm has made this Gayaki more unique.

Soon after it continued successively from Late Ajit Kumar Chakrabarty, Smt. Chandana Chakrabarty, and Shri Shantanu Bhattacharya.
