Pankaj Mishra, who has recently made Toronto his permanent home, comes from a long line of musicians. He is the great-grandson of Sarangi virtuoso late Pandit Saraju Prasad Mishra, grandson of late Pandit Mahadeo Prasad Mishra, and son of Shri Satya Narayan Mishra. He began learning music at an early age, taking his taalim from Pandit Mahesh Prasad Mishra. Pankaj’s sensitive style of playing and interpretation is admired and sought after by a wide range of musicians. He has performed solos, accompanied senior vocalists like Late Vidushi Girija Devi and tabla maestros like Pandit Kumar Bose.

Geet Mishra comes from a long line of musicians, and began her musical journey by learning santoor. Most recently, during the pandemic, she began learning sarangi from her father Pankaj Mishra.

George Koller is a prolific composer and producer. Recognized primarily as a bass player, George also plays a variety of instruments. He has had an interest in Indian Classical Music for over three decades and began learning sarangi from Pankaj Mishra during the pandemic. Raag-Mala Toronto thanks the Ontario Arts Council for their long standing support.
