Celebrated Singer Shaan lauds Young Genius Anirban Roy

India is home to several talented and established musicians. While it takes a lot of consistent practice to achieve mastery in the art form, Anirban Roy, a 10-year-old boy from West Bengal, is already receiving accolades for his mastery in playing the Flute. Anirban Roy recently showcased his talent of playing the instrument in the show Young Genius, which celebrates child prodigies. He also met with one of the most popular singers in the country Shaan who was all praises for the young Anirban.

Hailing from a small town in West Bengal, Anirban has showed amazing flair for playing the flute from a very young age. He plays 3 different types of flutes with surprising mastery. Recipient of the NAAD NANDAN AWARD 2019 for his excellent performance and MASTER MADAN AWARD from Suresh Wadkar's Music Academy Ajivasan Music Academy, Anirban has performed in front of legends like Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia and Kaushiki Chakraborty amongst others.

Impressed with Anirban’s talent the noted playback singer Shaan says, “Anirban has attained mastery of the flute at just the tender age of 10 whereas it takes people a lifetime to become so fluent. It’s a plus for Anirban that when he grows up, he would’ve already had a lot of experience in playing the instrument. I wish him all the best for his future and hope he continues to pursue his passion of playing the flute forever.”
