Protege of the legendary Sarod maestro, Pandit Buddhadev Das Gupta, Soumik is also a Masters graduate of Trinity College of Music. His command on Sarod combined with his flair for contemporary composition makes him ‘a unique artist in the vanguard of new British music’ BBC3.


As a music director, Soumik has composed for feature films: 'Life Goes On' (Dir: Sangeeta Datta; starring: Sharmila Tagore, Soha Ali Khan, Om Puri) and 'Tooting Broadway' (TBR 2012 Winter).


The creator of the first electro acoustic Sarod, Soumik combines guitar riffs with Indian melody, electronica and drum n bass to create a hybrid sound world distinctively his own.


He is currently touring with his new instrument on the project ‘Circle of Sound’: a collaboration with the stellar Austrian drummer Bernhard Schimpelsberger.
