About Sunita Khaund Bhuyan

Sunita Khaund Bhuyan may be a trained human resource professional with 17 years in the corporate world behind her but it is as a violinist, with a master’s degree in Hindustani Music and as a disciple of the late violin maestro Pandit V G Jog that Sunita dazzles. A recipient of the Indira Gandhi Priyadarshini Award for Music, she is that rare performer who blends skill and a nuanced understanding of music with spunk on stage. She started out training with her mother, the eminent violinist Minoti Khaund, then went on to do jugalbandis with her mother. Her musical range is breathtakingly wide, from pure classical music to a wide range of light melodies that fuse jazz, folk and a host of other influences to create a distinctive sound. She excels in blending influences – Bharat Darshan is her musical exploration of Indian folk while Raagas to Bollywood traces the underlying classical roots of many of filmdom’s most enduring compositions. Her recent album, Bihu Strings, explores the classical and world music influences in North-Eastern folk music.

Performance at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival’19

.

Sunita Bhuyan created History at the prestigious Kala Ghoda Arts Festival in Mumbai last week. The stage was enlivened and lit on fire with Bihu dancers from Assam who danced with her violin pieces, led by famous Dhol player Ranjit Gogoi, Pradeep Deka on his genius flute and Barun Dad on percussion.

Sunita’s Mumbai band along with her pianist son Ronojit Bhuyan added to the fusion ensemble and the crowd kept cheering for more. A lot of Assamese people from Enazori and Mumbai as well as a huge diaspora of music lovers from Mumbai’s rich cultural scene attended the program in the open air Cross Maidan field in Churchgate, the iconic venue of the Festival where many stalwarts from the music world performed. Sunita started with a tribute to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi for his 150th celebration, followed by her signature Bharat Darshan, a tribute to late Bhupen Hazarika to commemorate his Bharat Ratna, and finally set the stage on fire with the Bihu-Scottish Folk fusion with the Assamese dancers.
