Mita Nag performs two North Indian classical ragas on the sitar: Raga Basant Mukhari evokes the spirit of sunrise in springtime, Raga Bageshree is associated with the meditative mood of the late night, released in 2004 by Simla House©.
In the realm of North Indian classical music, families have historically carried forth the traditions of specific lineages of singers, musicians and dancers teaching and innovating through the generations, sons (and more recently daughters) learning the secrets of their trade from fathers and grandfathers before them. Mita Nag hails from such a family, her father being Pandit Manilal Nag and grandfather the legendary sitarist Pandit Gokul Nag of the Vishnupur Gharana, or style of sitar playing of ragas.
Mita Nag began her training in sitar starting as a very young child and has steadily practiced and progressed to this day, when she is recognized as a leading exponent of sitar among her generation. Mita maintains a busy concert and recording schedule performing all over India and internationally as well. She is also well known for her duet concerts with her illustrious father, Manilal Nag. The expertise, wisdom, sensitivity, and technical mastery of her sitar playing is sure to enthrall and enchant all listeners.
