About Mita Nag
One of the most outstanding sitarists of the globe today, Miss Mita Nag is the daughter and disciple of sitar maestro Pandit Manilal Nag of Kolkata and grand daughter of Sangeetacharya Gokul Nag of the Vishnupur School of Music. The Nag family of sitarists have a six generations of lineage rooted in the town of Bankura in West Bengal since the days of Ramshankar Bhattacharya, one of the earliest musicians of this gharana. Mita's initiation into sitar playing under her mother at the age of four and a half years was persuaded by her grandfather, Gokul Chandra, and the seeds of the early years coruscated into musical maturity under the sole tutelage of her Guru and dad, Manilal.
