About Angira Kotal: Angira was introduced to Hindustani classical music at a very early age by her mother Smt Ratna Kotal and soon she came under the tutelage of Shri Shyamal and Smt. Mandira Lahiri. She received taalim from Late Pandit Biresh Roy in subsequent years. However, music training was not continuous for her because of academic priorities. Angira graduated in Computer Science Engineering in 2010 followed by a short stint working in Cognizant Technology Solutions. She resumed learning music in 2011, after a long gap of nine years, under the aegis of Ustad Jainul Abedin. She quit her job in 2011 and took up music as a career. Angira also holds a Graduate Diploma with Distinction in Economics from University of Essex followed by a Masters Degree with Merit in Economics from University College London. During her stay in the UK she won the title “Yuva Sangeet Ratna,Young Musician of the Year Award 2013” organized by Milapfest, UK and supported by Arts Council England. Currently, she is receiving advanced taalim from the renowned vocalist Pandit Omkar Dadarkar. She has won the Pratima Chandra Memorial Award 2018 in khyal and thumri and has performed in prestigious platforms in the UK and Kolkata. Under the thoughtful and pragmatic guidance of her guru, she hopes to take forward the legacy of Hindustani Classical Music both in time and space.
