|Acharya Ritwik Sanyal|
The father and son team of Ramkumar Mallik and Samit Kumar Mallik performed a powerful yugal performance.
I particularly enjoyed the performance of Acharya Ritwik Sanyal, who was trained in the dhrupad style of vocal music of the Dagarbani. Sanyal is a Professor and Head of the department of vocal music and Dean at the Faculty of Performing Arts at Banaras Hindu University. His style is sweeter and softer than the more masculine vir rasa approach of the Mallik family. He finished with a rendition of Jayati Sri Radhe, which was especially appropriate for a concert in the Dham.
