Summary of tour dates

Raka Mukherjee is one of India's most prominent vocalists. She underwent a rigorous training in Indian classical music from the age of six years, under well-known teachers including Sri Sachin Roy, Pandit Jnan Prakash Ghosh, Pandit Kala Chand Lahiri and renowned musicologist Pandit Kumar Prasad Mukherjee. This training equipped her with a deep understanding of ragas and the ability to present them with both emotion and discipline. Raka is adept in Indian classical and semi-classical forms ranging from Kheyal and Thumri to Dadra and Bhajan.

The combination of Raka's technical skill with her beautiful voice has made her an "A" grade artist of All India Radio and Television, and she is regularly featured on radio and television networks. She has performed at many high-profile events in India and her international concerts in Europe have met with wide critical acclaim.
