"I was fortunate to be raised by musicians. Both, my father and mother are trained musicians and come from completely different musical and cultural backgrounds. My father was born in West Bengal, India, and was trained in the popular Bengali Folk style. My mother is from Colombia and grew up with Flamenco and South American music. From a very young age, music has been my passion”.
Born in 1982, inspired and taught by his father, Haribhakti developed a deep appreciation and love for devotional art and music. At the age of eight his father sent him to learn from Pt. Pradeep Gosh, a much respected and well known Music teacher in Kolkatta.
Later, Haribhakti Dey moved to Mumbai and continued his learning from Pt. Ajoy Pohankar, one of the most renowned Indian classical vocalists.
This Guru was a strict disciplinarian, and the long and arduous training made Haribhakti Dey a dedicated student and exponent of devotional Indian classical music.
The creative brilliance in Haribhakti Dey lies in his distinctive blend of styles. His pulsating rhythmic play and the cascades of his powerful, lightening-swift “Taans” are thrilling. His virtuosity, sensitivity, light singing, Alaap, slow and fast tempo, and total control of “Sur” and “Taal” have the captivating ability to touch the hearts and souls of his listeners.
Haribhakti Dey has performed numerous concerts throughout India both as a solo artist and in the company of other famous Indian musicians. He has taken Bhajan Sangeet to the world stage, performing sell-out concerts in Canada, USA, England, Australia, Dubai, Brazil, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
