Aloke Dasgupta entered the world on January 26, 1953 – India’s Republic Day. After studying with the late Binoy Dasgupta starting at the age of eleven, he became the student of Pandeet Jogesh Bannerjee, Professor Shiba Prasad Chakraborty, Smt. Kalyani Roy and finally the renowned master Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.

Erudite and articulated, with a master’s degree in Ethnomusicology from San Diego State University, Aloke made his debut in 1981, at the New York Folk Festival, where he was introduced by composer-performer David Amram. Since then, Maestro Dasgupta has enjoyed a steady journey of success all over the world. He has toured with India’s greatest violin virtuoso Pandit V. G. Jog. Having recorded or performed for Ozzy Osbourne, Mick Jagger, and Gwen Stefani (playing in No Doubt’s album Tragic Kingdom), to name a few, Aloke has become the go-to sitar man for many notable creative pursuits. In fact, he has continually been chosen to perform for Cheap Trick’s “Sgt. Pepper Live!” shows by legendary Beatles sound engineer Geoff Emerick, whose seasoned and precise ear calls for only the best to maintain the musical integrity and spirit of Beatles music. The Maestro played nine times with “Cheap Trick in Hollywood Bowl and 36 shows in Las Vegas.
