Some Newspapers say:
Aloke Dasgupta, an outstanding young performer on the sitar......
Conquering western frontiers - Aloke Dasgupta is successfully propagating Hindustani raag sangeet in the west.
He is considered to be the number one sitarist in the sub-continent both in his technique and play.
The strokes were bold and clear both in tan and jhala and had that laya and aesthetic awareness which make serious sincere music.
A tuneful success...
His alap, jod and jhala in the evening raga Marva was neat and well constructed. A lot of rhythmic variations in the teen tal gats made his concert interesting.
Mr. Dasgupta is a musician of brilliant technique, great imagination, and (at times) an engaging playfulness.
Performer tries to give Hindustani music life.
