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.
