Buddadev Das Gupta

Buddadev Das Gupta


Buddhadev Das Gupta was born in Bhagalpur , Bihar , on 1 st February, 1933 . He cannot claim any glorious musical heritage – his grandfather, a hardboiled advocate was totally averse to music. Buddhadev's father, Shri Prafulla Mohan Das Gupta was however highly inclined to music but could not engage in any sort of musical activities because of his father's stern opposition. However, he was a fairly good amateur singer, and Buddhadev's mother as well took lessons in sitar playing for quite a few years. Being a government employee, Buddhadev's father was transferred from place to place, but wherever he went, he became a close friend of the local musicians and invited them to his home. In spite of the frequent musical soirees at home, Buddhadev did not have a very early stirring of music in him.
