Indradeep Ghosh is one of the premier violinists of India and a trailblazer for the Seni Maihar Gharana. Born into a music loving family in Kolkata, he was encouraged by his parents, Tapati and S.N. Ghosh, to select a bow instrument of his choice as stroked and percussion instruments were prevalent in his family. His brothers play the sitar and tabla. When he picked up his first violin he almost considered it a toy as it was so small. He then began lessons at the early age of six. He completely credits his mother for cultivating his interest in the violin as she nurtured and encouraged him to develop his musical abilities.
His first experience with the spotlight was at the age of 10 where he performed on television for the first time. The following year he gave his first public performance. His early success and numerous accolades deepened his interest in the violin and he gradually fell in love with it. He continued to perform in many concerts and recitals throughout high school and university. After graduating from Calcutta University with a political science honors he decided to pursue music as his profession since it was his true passion.
