about

He is from Bihar and currently resides in Delhi where he received his PhD in Hundustani Classical Music from Delhi University under the guidance sitarist Professor Smt. Anupam Mahajan. Before this he received training from sarod maestro CL Das of Patna, Bihar and sitarist Professor Ravi Sharma at Rohtak University, Haryana.

Suraj Nirwan plays tabla on this album. He is the son of the great late Pt. Subhash Nirwan and represents the Delhi Gharana of tabla players. His creative and masterful use of rhythm is the perfect accompaniment for Dr. Ranjan. The two have a special chemistry when playing together as they practiced together for long hours during Dr. Ranjan'a doctorate studies.

These recordings were made in Dr. Ranjan's home in Delhi with a simple field recorder and mixed and mastered by Joel Eisenkramer for Root Cellar Sound International.
